Vertica at the Boulder BI Brain Trust (BBBT)

Back on December 17th, Shilpa Lawande (Vertica’s VP Engineering), Sam Madden (MIT Professor and Technical Advisor for Vertica) and I had the pleasure to spend the day in Boulder, Colorado as part of the Boulder BI Brain Trust series, “a gathering of leading, local, BI consultants and experts who attend 1/2-day presentations from interesting and innovative BI vendors.”

As part of our half-day briefing, Claudia Imhoff, Phd. interviewed Shilpa, Sam, and I about Vertica and the Vertica Analytics Platform. In this 15 minute recording, we covered:

  • Vertica’s impressive growth
  • Our column-oriented architecture
  • The Four “C’s” of Vertica
  • Our customers and how they monetize their data
  • Vertica’s ease of use through the Database Designer and connectors
  • How Vertica is looking towards the future

We had a great time with the BBBT, and they provided a ton of insight that helped validate our product and business vision. If you would like to listen to the 15-minute podcast, please visit the link below:
