With Exasol, we have the right engine behind our data analytics. Exasol keeps delivering, no matter the test. There’s no other analytic database like it; it’s the complete package. Its speed continues to amaze me to the point that I sometimes wonder whether it has actually finished the job in the time it has taken. It has, always.
