In Forrester's 56-criteria evaluation of enterprise data warehousing (EDW) platform vendors, we found the EDW market increasingly competitive, as illustrated by tighter clustering of top vendors. Teradata, Oracle, Sybase (SAP), and IBM lead by offering high-performance, scalable, flexible, and robust EDW solutions. Teradata provides the most scalable, flexible, cloud-capable EDW solution in today's market. Oracle has built its Exadata Database Machine into a formidable new product family. Sybase, recently acquired by SAP, continues to enhance IQ's massively parallel columnar technology for real-time analytics. IBM has ramped up its EDW solution focus and now sets the pace on petabyte-scale Hadoop integration. SAP is rapidly evolving and converging BW and BWA into a high-performance EDW with an in-memory, columnar infrastructure optimized for real-time analytics. EMC Greenplum demonstrates solid execution and continued innovation. Netezza (recently acquired by IBM) has integrated in-database analytics into its high-performance EDW appliances. Microsoft has launched cost-effective EDW appliances for midmarket and large enterprises, and Strong Performer Vertica Systems continues to enhance its high-performance all-columnar EDW architecture.
