In-memory analytics is referred to as an analytical platform in which users run queries and interact with the data stored in the main memory instead of the hard disk. This approach facilitates faster query response, high performance, reduced operational costs, and encourages self-service analytics. It helps reduce the latency of data, thus enabling real-time data analysis with faster extraction of data.
