Real-time information processing, a concept that has been around for a long time, has been in vogue lately. One reason for its popularity is the fact that real-time capable technology and online services have become very affordable, even for small businesses. Another factor is that real time has the attention and interest of the boardroom and executive suite. The idea of being able to instantaneously sense and respond to threats and opportunities has a lot of appeal for business leaders vying for an edge in a fiercely competitive global economy. With technology chipping away at the time it takes to gather relevant and accurate data, there’s less need for bureaucratic, hierarchical decision-making structures. Emerging technologies are now becoming part of the enterprise scene—such as in memory technology, cloud, mobile, and NoSQL databases—are bringing more real-time capabilities to the fore.
