BEDFORD, Mass., March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- VoltDB today announced that Forrester Research Inc. cited the company as a strong performer in its February 2017 report, "The Forrester Wave™: In-Memory Databases, Q1 2017." As cited in the report, VoltDB's in-memory database received four out of a possible five points in five criteria: data management, transaction capabilities, performance, high availability and disaster recovery, and use cases. The report states enterprises "shortlist VoltDB when building low-latency translytical applications to support self-service data platform capabilities."
The Forrester Wave™: In-Memory Databases, Q1 2017 "identifies the 13 most significant software providers" in the in-memory databases market, evaluating each vendor based on 24 weighted criteria, including current offering, strategy and market presence. The report details how well each vendor fulfills Forrester's criteria and where the vendors stand in relation to each other to meet next-generation real-time data requirements.
According to the Forrester report, "An in-memory database is not just a nice-to-have option anymore — it has become critical to support next-generation transactions, analytics, and operational insights…. Today's in-memory databases are changing the way we build and deliver systems of engagement, and they are transforming the practice of analytics, predictive modeling, and business transaction management."
