How has it helped my organization?

It has been the primary driving technology behind the corporate wide transition to Netezza as a standard data platform. A whole ecosystem is beginning to develop around the product.

What needs improvement?

It is not designed for transactional systems. Transactional systems that require frequent updates, deletes, etc should use a different solution.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Netezza does not perform well with a significant volume of individual record operations. Netezza is designed specifically for set based operations.
