U.S. In-Memory Analytics Markett

The growing emphasis on cost optimization, massive storage for complex data, and innovation have boosted the usage of in-memory analytics. It enables obtaining real-time information, thus allowing enterprises to make improved decisions for profit maximization.

The implementation of in-memory analytics provides numerous benefits such as fast processing, real-time insights, and safety & security, among others. However, for it to work seamlessly, it needs proper expertise at all levels. The lack of experts, especially in developing economies, is one of the significant challenges for the market. Moreover, concerns related to data privacy and data security might hinder the growth prospects for the market.

In the U.S., the customer experience management application segment dominated the in-memory analytics market in 2016, followed by the operational efficiency application segment. The in-memory analytics help customers to get real-time experience. It also aids in reducing the time and increasing the understanding of users for making better operational and marketing decisions.

Application Insights

The customer experience management segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment, and it held the largest market share in 2016. It enables enterprises to manage customer insights and provide customized services. Increasing competition is encouraging enterprises to adopt in-memory analytics that gives them a competitive advantage over rivals.

Additionally, operations optimization enables real-time visibility of operations such as product, process, and workforce management. Furthermore, the supply chain management is also enhanced. Thus, the market for operational optimization is expected to grow steadily over the forecast period.

Vertical Insights

Real-time analysis and decision-making have enabled enterprises to make better strategic decisions. All the sectors such as BFSI, healthcare, telecommunications, government & defense, and others require real-time data to keep updating the status of their customers and customizing products and services accordingly.

BFSI is projected to be the fastest-growing vertical over the forecast period. The banking and insurance sector compiles large amounts of data from many sources.
