Financial software provider SunGard wanted to improve the performance of its credit risk application in response to customer demands. The firm also wanted to speed up one of its key system processes. To address these needs, SunGard tested in-memory OLTP n SQL Server 2014. Lab tests showed a 136 percent performance increase in a critical system process. As a result, the company can support higher customer trading volumes and give bank employees more time to trade each day. SunGard also anticipates cost savings from using existing hardware.
