Many businesses struggle with slow and inflexible business intelligence tools and processes. Until recently, Dell's sales operations group experienced these same challenges. They solved those problems by creating an agile data mart based on SAP HANA in-memory database technology. The agile data mart was a repository for the company's data that was designed to meet the needs of its business analysts and to provide blazing fast performance. As a result of the agile data mart initiative, Dell was able to reduce its BI costs by nearly half while synchronizing its data and improving its report turnaround time by 60%.

It bundles SAP's HANA in-memory platform with Dell services and Dell hardware that uses the Intel Xeon® processor family.
