India’s Premier Retailer Chooses The Netezza Appliance For Better Business Intelligence


Marlborough, MA — Netezza Corporation (NYSE Arca: NZ), the global leader in data warehouse and analytic appliances, today announced that Shoppers Stop, India’s premier retail chain, has selected the Netezza data warehouse appliance to provide faster and more comprehensive sales data analytics for its expanding retail operations throughout India.

With more than 10 million customers, close to 2 million square feet of retail space and 250 brands of garments and accessories, Shoppers Stop is one of India’s fastest-growing companies and a one-stop shop for customers.

The Netezza appliance will provide deep analytics on sales data and help Shoppers Stop better manage its loyalty card program, “First Citizen.” Shoppers Stop will also use the Netezza appliance for campaign management and complex analytics on all of its data at the speed of thought.

“We remain committed to building world-class retail capabilities, and a focus on business intelligence and analytics is a key component of that,” said Arun Gupta, customer care associate & group chief technology officer, Shoppers Stop. “Our selection of Netezza underscores this commitment to excellence.”
