Faster insight. Lower cost. Less complexity.
According to a recent MIT Sloan School of Management and IBM Institute for Business Value report1, organisations that leverage the power of analytics in their decision-making and strategic planning processes compared to organisations that have just started with analytics, outperform their competitors by up to 3 times. But when it comes to delivering actionable insight from analytics investments in a usable timeframe, i.e., hours, minutes and seconds, not all approaches to data warehousing and business analytics are up to the task.
Oracle Exadata attempts to be optimised simultaneously for transactional applications such as CRM and analytics on the same system. Those workloads, however, require very different underlying system resources in order to run most cost effectively and efficiently. In contrast, IBM’s data warehouse appliances and integrated analytic systems employ purpose-built hardware and tightly optimised software to help ensure companies get high performance analytics at a fraction of the cost of Oracle Exadata2.
IBM ensures companies are up and running in a matter of days. Whether you need the simplicity of a data warehouse appliance or the flexibility of an integrated optimised system for analytics, IBM offers purpose-built, easy-to-maintain systems that are tuned specifically for analytic workloads and integrate smoothly into your existing IT environment.

2COST comparison based on US-based publicly available information and prices applicable in the US as of 2/10/2011 for an Oracle Exadata X2-2 HP Full Rack and a full rack of Netezza TwinFin. The cost to acquire Netezza can be as low as 1/6 of Exadata if a client is acquiring new Oracle database licenses and as low as 1/2 if using existing Oracle database licenses.
