A partner for analytics advances – BARC survey showcases Exasol strengths

Analytics maturity – Exasol

A perfect recommendation score and high user ratings for all KPIs in The Data Management Survey 22 highlight Exasol as the ideal partner for advancing analytics maturity.

Exasol has continued its run of very strong results against its peer group rivals in BARC’s annual survey of data management end users. We received 26 ‘Top’ rankings across two groups and rated 10/10 in five of the 17 KPIs. In addition, 100% of surveyed users told BARC they would recommend the Exasol database. 

These quantitative results are backed up by qualitative feedback from our customers, which is extremely rewarding to see. “It’s amazing,” reported one CIO/IT Manager. “We ran a lot of performance tests before choosing Exasol, and Exasol was by far the fastest.” 

“It’s great to work with a database where I can just relax and trust it to do its job efficiently,” another data engineer/data manager explained in the survey.  

But as we know from our own customer research, it’s not just the technical KPIs Exasol users appreciate. Our ‘Top’ rating in the Support Quality KPI (8.3/10) – in our peer groups “Data Warehouse Technologies” and “Analytical Database Products” – is also worth highlighting. “The performance of the database and the quality of the support are outstanding,” summarized one user to BARC. 

This kind of feedback is incredibly important to us, especially when our customers include the likes of Piedmont healthcare, a non-profit with more than two million patients. In a recent Exasol case study, Piedmont reports that thanks to working closely with the Exasol team, their decision-makers now have reliable access to the right data when they need it, which has helped reduce patient harm by 40%.
