I use Vertica for traditional data warehouse reporting and some advanced analytics as well as real-time data processing or real-time analytics. I sell Vertica, so my clients' use cases vary. There are several types of users, and each company is going to have different requirements. And the number of users is not necessarily a great measure of usage if you're doing clickstream-type data on a website with massive numbers of queries coming in very quickly. But in other cases, you have people hammering it for reporting and various kinds of business use cases.

We are using Vertica for our data warehouse. We run all the ETL and then store the information for the reports which are given to the business team for use for analytical purposes.

The solution is a BI solution that includes machine learning. Our company is involved in the distribution of water and we use it to capturing data for several points and to discover where there might have been a loss of drinkable water. There is a problem with the water distribution because the company that I'm working for has an index of 32% of water loss during the process of the distribution. These losses can be from a different source. It can be from leakage, it can be an error or on the meter read which can have many issues, sometimes the problem occurs in different hours depending on the pressure of the water network. We need to use artificial intelligence to collect millions of the data points to detect where the problem might be coming from.

We are resellers and we provide products for our customers. Our clients are using this solution in two ways; one is for a data warehouse, and the second is for analytics in the database.

We are very happy to have a good warehouse solution that we can run on-premises. Next year we will start testing it on the cloud so we can progress to a hybrid solution. We would like to have Vertica in the cloud integrating with our data lake. We could go with another cloud solution but Vertica has been a good solution for us so far and we hope the cloud product is as good and flexible. On-premises, Vertica would still be used as our data warehouse solution. That would keep us where we know that the cost for the hardware is relatively reasonable where we have customers running large number of reports. At the moment we have customers running many thousands of reports a day and having Vertica gives us real-time insight into our data. The ROI with Vertica on premises has been sunstantial.

We push both raw and modeled data into a Vertica cluster. It is used mainly for internal analysis and Tableau reports by data scientists and analysts.
