What would YOU do with eight cores of SAP IQ?

Last year, SAP quietly updated its SAP BusinessObjects packages to include a data warehouse. Customers who opt for the professional or premium editions of the BI suite also gain eight cores of SAP IQ database, eight cores of SAP Data Integrator, and 1 seat of SAP PowerDesigner. What could YOU do if you had eight cores of SAP IQ?
