Actually, I didn't come up with that analogy. The credit goes to another Oracle ACE, soon to be retired: /
///With the in-memory columnar copy you should be able to drop many “DSS indexes”, thus improving OLTP response times – in effect the in-memory stuff behaves a bit like non-persistent bitmap indexing./ /
I can see that you disagree with such a description, but I cannot claim the authorship. I am glad you recognized that as a falsehood from a mile away and I am sure you will be able to correct the author.

Last but certainly not least, I wish you a merry Christmas.
