The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Warehouse, Q4 2013

December 9, 2013


Why Read This Report

Although enterprise data warehouse (EDW) is a mature technology, vendors continue to innovate and enhance its real-time analytics, distributed in-memory, advanced compression, and scalable appliance features and its integration with Hadoop, data virtualization, and cloud to support new and emerging use cases. Today's most demanding EDW environments support petabytes of aggregated data, billions of records, complex mixed-query workloads, and subsecond queries. In Forrester's 43-criteria evaluation of EDW vendors, we evaluated 11 solutions from Actian, Amazon Web Services (AWS), HP, IBM, Kognitio, Microsoft, Oracle, ParAccel, Pivotal, SAP, and Teradata. We scored factors like performance, scalability, integration with Hadoop and data services, security, high availability, mixed workload management, and hardware optimization to give you the decision tools to create the right shortlist for your particular environment and scenarios. This report details our findings about how well each solution fulfills the criteria and where they stand in relation to each other.
