Vertica in Leader’s Circle of GigaOm Radar Report for Data Warehouses

Posted August 12, 2021 by Jeff Healey, Vice President of Marketing, Vertica Product Group in Micro Focus

For the second consecutive year, GigaOm has positioned Vertica in the “leader’s circle” of its Radar Report for Data Warehouses. In the report – “a forward-looking analysis that plots the relative value and progression of vendor solutions along multiple axes based on strategy and execution” – GigaOm scored Vertica with all “exceptional” or “capable” ratings across key criteria and evaluation metrics, securing a position in the “leader’s circle” once again among the 10 participating vendors.

According to GigaOm, “vendors that are set closer to center [are] judged to be of higher overall value.”

There are two key axes in the chart below – Maturity versus Innovation, and Feature Play versus Platform Play. The arrow projects each solution’s evolution over the coming 12 to 18 months.
