December 14, 2011 – Birst Inc. has put together an in-memory database that puts the vendor’s agile business analytics focus at the forefront.

Eighteen months in the making, the Birst In-Memory Analytics Database is a standalone relational database offering that centers on ad hoc analysis of business data, rather than transactional information as in other in-memory releases. According to an announcement about the product, the database features a columnar structure setup and parallel processing, and functionality that builds on Birst’s data warehouse automation technology of integrating data sources into a multidimensional design. Data analysis is modified in real time and is based on a SQL interface and JAVA for enhanced compatibility with disparate applications and existing infrastructure.
