Dirty Diapers and In-Memory Technology – Safer, More Reliable ProductsRaising children is one of the most difficult, yet the most rewarding and joyous experiences of most parents’ lives. It is a true joy to hold your baby in your arms as they stare up at you with wide, innocent eyes – a helpless little creature relying on you for everything. You love watching them grow and hit all the major milestones in just the first few years of life: sitting up, rolling over, standing, walking…

But one thing parents don’t enjoy is changing their baby’s seemingly incessant number of diapers containing a mess that smells and looks so sickening that grown men run in fear (too much?). The good news is technology literally saves you from getting the by-products of your children’s meals all over their clothes, their crib, your house and your hands. I could show you some pretty gross pictures to illustrate the downsides of “crappy” diapers that didn’t do the job, but I’ve been advised against it as to not scare away visitors.

So what does technology have to do with dirty diapers? Well, personal care product providers like Kimberly Clark, producer of leading diaper and wipes brand Huggies, are leveraging in-memory technology to deliver safe and reliable products that consumers all over the world rely on daily. This technology helps Kimberly Clark track and manage product quality throughout production and distributions, helping them consistently meet or exceed quality measures and product safety regulations.

With the massive growth of big data, in-memory computing systems, like SAP’s HANA, are key to maintaining efficient and effective business processes. Data processing and analytics technology, helps accelerate the reporting process to provide access to data in real-time. This means better information faster. With the power of real-time data, consumer product brands like Kimberly Clark can more accurately track products from development to distribution and make more informed decisions.

For parents this means peace of mind knowing that the products their children wear are safe.
