TIBCO Spotfire Partners With Netezza to Enable Customers to Dynamically Visualize, Analyze Massive Data Sets

Companies Will Deliver Higher-Performance, Lower-Cost Solutions That Address Customers' Data Management Concerns



29 September, 2009


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced certification of the TIBCO Spotfire® Enterprise Analytics Platform with the Netezza® TwinFin™ appliance, the first in a family of new blade server-based appliances. The integrated solution from TIBCO and Netezza combines high performance data access and data transformations with robust data mining and computational analytics. This puts the power of predictive analytics into the hands of any business user, with interactive data visualizations they can easily understand. With the volume of enterprise data growing exponentially, this level of speed and interactivity is unmatched by traditional business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing technology.

The TwinFin appliance scales to more than a petabyte of user data and delivers orders of magnitude better performance than competing solutions. In an environment where corporate decision making is based on massive data-driven analyses, the Netezza TwinFin appliance delivers unmatched performance – at half the cost – of traditional data warehouse systems.

"Our customers use Netezza to simplify how they deal with their growing data and overcome the limitations of their current analytics and data warehousing systems," said Phil Francisco, vice president of product management at Netezza. "At a time when companies need to be as agile as possible to react to changing market conditions and growing analytic demands, TIBCO and Netezza are giving customers superior intelligence and foresight. This will fundamentally change the way organizations leverage large-scale data warehouses to make faster, more informed decisions."

"Adoption of traditional BI platforms has been hampered by the lack of deep integration with business processes and reliance on typically static information in the data warehouse," said Lars Bauerle, vice president of product management at TIBCO Spotfire. "By combining TIBCO Spotfire's industry-leading enterprise analytics software with Netezza, we are enabling any decision maker to access critical data and instantly perform on-the-fly analysis, and find insights that have a direct impact on company performance. This is setting a new standard for enterprises looking to turn complex data and transactions into critical business insights."

TIBCO Spotfire will be participating in Netezza Enzee Universe 2009, a worldwide, seven-city tour, when it stops in Chicago on September 29th. The Enzee Universe agenda includes technical deep dives on new products, a variety of perspectives on TwinFin's impact on the industry, best practices, and real-life success stories.
