Abstract

This research identifies how in-memory technology can be leveraged to understand big data in a case study using Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) data from Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) database. Literature review was first conducted to compare and contrast different In-memory database design architectures, to define the role of in-memory computing in Big-Data Analytics, and to address the role of different types of Self-Service Business Intelligence (BI) in visual discovery. A data warehouse schema and related data modeling framework (i.e., attribute views, analytical views, and calculation views) were proposed and implemented to support guided- and self-service visual discovery at the data discovery stage utilizing SAP HANA In-memory Appliance. Finally, experiments were conducted to test the proposed models and framework with users ranging from novice to computer savvy. The data were analyzed and recommendations were provided for future research improvement.
