As enterprises are faced with many new forms of big data and analytics technologies, including a plethora of both commercial and open source technology, they must decide which analytics approach to pursue to generate the greatest amount of meaningful insights to power the business and generate financial return.
The Vertica team has commissioned Forrester Consulting to examine the full diversity of analytical engines and workloads currently used by enterprise data analytics professionals. In this insightful study, Forrester tested the hypothesis that there is no single silver-bullet analytical engine that will efficiently serve the diversity of analytical workloads in a big data world. One solution simply can’t provide a full range of business insights. Instead, organizations will find the greatest amount of success-generating insights by implementing an open analytics architecture that will seamlessly leverage a diverse set of analytical engines.
