Healthcare Alliance Powers Faster Intelligent Decisions With Netezza And Fuzzy Logix


Premier, Inc. Finds Faster Intelligent Decisions with Analytics using DB Lytix Powered by Netezza’s OnStream Analytics

BOSTON, — Netezza Corporation (NYSE: NZ), the global leader in data warehouse and analytic appliances, along with Fuzzy Logix, Inc., a Netezza Developer Network (NDN) partner announced today that the Premier healthcare alliance, will use the power of Netezza’s OnStream Analytics™ processing via Fuzzy Logix’s DB Lytix™, to speed up the delivery of healthcare knowledge to their affiliates nationwide. By exploiting the high performance analytics, Premier will empower their members to transform healthcare delivery while continuing to reduce healthcare costs.

“We’ve been using Netezza’s appliances since 2004 and have seen performance gains of 10X to 100X over other platforms. By leveraging OnStream Analytics processing via DB Lytix, we believe that we will once again experience another similar boost in performance,” said Chris Stewart, senior architect, Premier. “Partnering with Fuzzy Logix presents a great opportunity for us to improve the performance of existing applications and to leverage their skills to build custom analytical models that will drive higher value for our customers and investors.”

DB Lytix is a robust library of mathematical, statistical, data mining and predictive analytics that leverages the high performance throughput of Netezza’s appliances. DB Lytix uses OnStream Analytics for tremendous gains in speed as data is processed from streams off of the disk by Netezza’s shared-nothing Asymmetric Massively Parallel Processing™ architecture. The high performance in-database analytics processing delivers better insights in a simpler technology environment while reducing IT maintenance costs since there is no need for additional hardware, software or server licenses.

Netezza’s Phil Francisco, vice president of product management and marketing agrees, “Fuzzy Logix was an early adopter of our embedded analytics vision using OnStream Analytics to power their analytics package. Premier immediately recognized that faster performance translated to more agility for their customers. With DB Lytix, they not only get faster performance but also sharper, more timely insight to help their members improve their healthcare delivery.”

According to Partha Sen, CEO of Fuzzy Logix, “We are very excited to be working with such an innovative company as Premier to enhance the value they deliver to their customers and to further leverage their investment in Netezza’s products. Since installation and training can take place in less than one week, Premier and its customers will see benefits almost immediately.”
