The Sapbase combo changes Decision Management in a couple of ways:
> Complex Event Processing (CEP): Risk Analytics Platform (RAP) could expand beyond its small footprint to a much larger market. Having CEP capabilities readily available from the larger Platform vendors definitely increases the visibility of technology and help develop its capabilities faster (typically not as an in-house development but through acquisitions) — that may fuel some entrepreneurs’ appetite
> Analytics: In-database analytics get a fair amount of Press so it seems that the potential combinaison of SAP in-memory capabilities running inside Sybase’s database could turn into a great differentiator — assuming unprecedented performance, enabling decision making at an impressive scale.
I found those readings on the subject very well stated, factual and insightful. Feel free to pay them a visit as well.
