Accenture has appointed Dr Alexander Zeier as managing director of In-Memory Solutions.

With over 20 years experience in SAP technologies and solutions, Dr

In this new role, he will be working with Accenture clients to develop
in-memory solutions and provide sales support to global industry teams,
while serving as director of programs for the SAP HANA platform within
the Accenture Innovation Center for SAP solutions.

“Alexander brings an incredible and unrivalled depth of expertise in the
areas of analytics and in-memory technology,” said Christophe Mouille,
global managing director of SAP business for Accenture.

“Alexander possesses a truly unique understanding of the business value
that can be unlocked through the power of in-memory computing. Our
clients will benefit from his extensive experience in researching and
developing in-memory technology that turns massive amounts of customer

Dr Zeier said he is excited to join a team that has been committed to developing solutions based on in-memory technology.

“Companies are relying on transactional and analytical data more than
ever. The capabilities enabled by in-memory computing combined with
Accenture’s vast industry knowledge will result in better, faster
insights and new innovative business processes for our clients,” said

Since March 2012 Dr. Zeier has been a Visiting Professor in Residence at
