Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Taking Next Steps with In-Memory and Cloud Technology

As its name and reputation suggest, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has been a pioneer in technological advancements throughout its 155-year history. The institute of higher learning, which is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, counts the creation of electronic spreadsheets and the founding of the World Wide Web Consortium among the numerous advances its scholars and academics have contributed to science and technology.

It’s no surprise, then, that history has shown MIT’s own technology infrastructure to be leading edge. An SAP customer since its rollout of SAP R/3 in 1996, the Institute has been running its central administrative processes on the software for two decades. In fact, MIT was so ahead of the curve that it developed its own custom data warehouse to provide access to transactional SAP data before SAP had even created its enterprise warehouse.
