SAP Vora is an in-memory computing solution from SAP that allows to develop analytical applications from massive data sources (Big Data) and NoSQL. In this article we will introduce you to its main components and features. Furthermore, we will disclose some initial insights about its performance by using a test case developed at Clariba.
