Prestigious report into market priorities and trends ranks Exasol as primed to meet real-world needs
Here at Exasol, we are passionate about transforming how people use data, whether that’s enabling an organisation to bring together disparate data sources and mine for actionable insights to drive profitability, or helping charitable organisations spot trends that could ultimately save lives. For more than 20 years, we have worked hard to build a pure database and to consistently deliver an exceptional experience to our customers across the globe, allowing them to focus on the decisions and outcomes that matter to them.
Today, this hard work has been recognised by the prestigious Dresner Market Study for the Analytical Data Infrastructure (ADI) Market 2018. It’s the first year we’ve been included in this report and we’ve gone straight to the top versus the other vendors, leading in both vendor credibility and customer experience. The report illustrates that we are primed to meet the needs and priorities of the market in 2018.
The report took a deep-dive into ways that end-users are planning to invest in ADI technology in 2018 and considerations behind implementation and use-cases. These include:
Performance and security: This is a top priority for analytical data infrastructure decisions in 2018, which is not surprising as data analytics becomes mission critical and with GDPR around the corner. Our customers are always delighted with our performance and security, alongside our speed. Seeing is believing and our customers frequently comment that we are so fast they had to check it was working. It always was.
On-premise deployments of analytical infrastructure still lead but hybrid implementations are gaining ground: The rise of cloud has seen many vendors go all in. However, at Exasol we know that different organisations need very tailored infrastructure for their needs. Exasol is the only vendor to cater to all scenarios.
Scale up/scale out capabilities (clustering, load balancing, availability and data lifecycle management: Businesses are thinking about the future even in a pay-as-you-grow cloud world. We understand this and we’ve made sure we deliver.
Use of R, machine learning technology and MapReduce analytics: As organisations move to smarter data strategies, easy access to and use of analytic features and programming languages will become critical. We are building Exasol for the future.
The priorities show that we are in for another fast-paced year with a mixture of regulatory and competitive pressures encouraging organisations to become more sophisticated with how they use their data. This means working with partners and platforms that can bring together disparate sources of data in order to unlock the value held with to drive business benefits and efficiencies.
It’s going to be an exciting year and we are pleased to be at the centre of it, and of the Global Dresner Market Study for Analytical Data Infrastructure.
The report is part of Dresner Advisory Services Wisdom of the Crowd Series, reflecting real-world technology applications of analytical data infrastructure – the set of technology components for integrating, modeling, managing, storing, and accessing data sets. These data sets then serve as sources for analytic and business intelligence consumers, such as analytic/business applications, tools, and users.
