Netezza Positioned In The "Leaders" Quadrant Of The Magic Quadrant For Data Warehouse Database Management Systems


Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Netezza Corporation (NYSE: NZ), the global leader in data warehouse and analytic appliances, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Database Management Systems.”

The Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluates a vendor’s ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to the Gartner report, “The data warehouse DBMS market has evolved from an information store supporting traditional BI platforms to a broader analytics infrastructure supporting operational analytics, corporate performance management and other new applications and uses (such as operational BI and performance management). Organizations are adding additional workloads with online transaction processing (OLTP) access, and data loading is moving to intra-day — approaching continuous loading.”

“Netezza believes its position in the ”Leaders“ quadrant demonstrates a strengthened position – both in Execution and Innovation – over last year,” said Jim Baum, president and CEO of Netezza. “We feel this report reaffirms our continued success in the data warehouse appliance market with the introduction of the TwinFin™ appliance, and our progress in delivering powerful in-database analytics and advanced workload management capabilities at the enterprise level.”

The Netezza® TwinFin family of commodity blade server and storage-based data appliances enable organizations to process enormous amounts of captured data at exceptional speeds. In addition to the company’s flagship TwinFin appliance, Netezza also recently announced the Netezza Skimmer™ appliance, a highly versatile appliance with a compact footprint that can power development groups and data marts or serve as a platform for “application appliances” that are very easy to deploy and manage.
