After five days (and eleven meetings) with new customers in Europe, Russia, and the Middle East, I think the time is right for another refinement of in-memory computing’s definition. To me, it is clear that our industry is lagging when it comes to explaining in-memory computing to potential customers and defining what in-memory computing is really about. We struggle to come up with a simple,…

Gordon E. Moore’s famously predicted tech explosion was prophetic, but it may have hit a snag. While the number of transistors on integrated circuits has doubled approximately every two years since his 1965 paper, the ability to process and transact on data hasn’t. We’re now ingesting data faster than we can make sense of it, leaving computing at an impasse. Without a new approach, the innovation…
