Netezza Previous Solutions

Kapil Sharma
Technical Lead at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
Netezza was the first one which we incorporated and started using heavily. Before that, we did test the other data warehousing technology but it was just a PoC and PoV test. In some of our business areas, they still use SQL Server data warehouses and Oracle data warehouses. But once we moved to Netezza, different business units bought in, and now we are up to Hadoop solutions and AWS solutions. View full review »

Business Intelligence Solution Architect at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
Previously, Oracle was used as the data warehousing platform, and performance was low and not meeting the needs of the enterprise reporting and analytic user community. My customer switched to Netezza mainly for performance, and it was a big improvement. View full review »
Thomas Starr
Lead Business Intelligence Analyst at a logistics company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Our IT leadership made the decision to go with Netezza before I joined the company, that decision had already been made. Prior to that we were using Microsoft SQL Server. The only thing that I was really privy to was, Netezza was chosen because of its analytical capabilities and for the ability to process through a very high volume of records and give an aggregate solution from an analysis standpoint, in a very quick fashion.

Business Intelligence Administrator at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
We're looking to switch away from Netezza because the platform database system that it runs on is no longer going to be in existence. It's moving to DB2. If it moves to that direction, the amount of changes in logic and queries that it would require is pretty substantial. At that point I would basically be rewriting everything. When selecting a vendor, obviously I don't want somebody who is brand new. I want somebody who has a track record of actually being around for awhile. It needs to be a company with a product that does the functions that a database should do, and not something that's only a partial solution. There are a lot of solutions out there that do three-quarters of what a warehouse should be doing, but three-quarters of a warehouse are not sufficient. View full review »

We were previously using Oracle Database. We switched for performance reasons and running complex queries. Compared to Oracle, Netezza has superior performance. View full review »
Ariovaldo Santos
Senior Solution Architect at a tech vendor with 1,001-5,000 employees
I worked for different companies and my experience is really wide. Teradata is the paramount solution! Oracle’s Exadata invests a lot in both technology and marketing, sometimes losing the focus on “real” analytics. They used to address the platform as both OLAP and OLTP (“one size fits all”), which is not correct. View full review »

We used Oracle previously. The performance required less maintenance when comparing index and data maintenance issues. View full review »

We used Teradata for Data Mart for certain applications but issues arose once the data setup grew. Using PDA, the issues were resolved. View full review »
