We chose Greenplum because of the architecture in terms of clustering databases and being able to have, or at least utilize the resources that are sitting on a database.

Scalability is simple because it's an MPP database. If you need more processing power or you need more storage, you just add a few more nodes in the cluster. It works on common commodity hardware. You can use any type of server. You don't need to have proprietary hardware. It's fairly flexible.

Some integration with other platforms like design tools, and ETL development tools, that will enable some advanced functionality, like fully down processing, etc.

I saw some limitation with respect to the column store, and removing this would be an improvement.
