King of the Data Warehouse Mountain

GigaOm, a leading and trusted technology research firm with analysts evaluating and covering a range of technologies and solutions, published its GigaOm Radar for Evaluating Data Warehouse Platform. In the report, Vertica secured the top spot, scoring consistently high rankings across the key criteria and evaluation metrics compared to 12 top competitors in the GigaOm Radar.

GigaOm placed Vertica in the “Leaders” circle, which shows the progression of the placement (from the dot to the directional arrow) even closer to the center, based on current and future capabilities to meet key evaluation criteria.
