Accenture Readies for the Persistent Memory Revolution – Intel Chip Chat – Episode 531
In this Intel Chip Chat audio podcast with Allyson Klein: Prof. Dr. Alexander Zeier, Global Managing Director for In-Memory Solutions (incl. HANA/S4HANA) at Accenture, and Mike Ferron-Jones, Product Line Manager for Intel Persistent Memory Solutions, join us to discuss the incredible potential of Intel persistent memory. At SAP SAPPHIRE NOW 2017, Intel demonstrated an SAP HANA instance running on a platform utilizing both DRAM and Intel persistent memory. In this discussion, Ferron-Jones talks about Intel persistent memory’s most-exciting features, and how large, affordable, non-volatile memory will drive a revolution in application development and service delivery. Then, Dr. Zeier speaks to Intel persistent memory’s ability to eliminate memory size bottlenecks and accelerate workloads like machine learning, deep learning, and advanced analytics. Finally, the two discuss Intel’s collaboration with Accenture and SAP to ensure that SAP HANA will take full advantage when Intel persistent memory is made available to end customers in 2018.
