2013-02-05 14:49:54 - EXASOL offers a strong support, a wide customer adoption and a growing product maturity
Nuremberg, February 5, 2013 – The German-based EXASOL AG is listed again in the Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse Database Management Systems (DBMS) by Gartner, a leading analyst company.
According to Gartner, Inc., the data warehouse DBMS market is transforming due to the rise of "big data" and logical data warehouses. Unexpectedly, many organizations entered the data warehouse market in 2012 for the first time, increasing demand for professional services and causing important changes in vendors' positions.
EXASOL's in-memory DBMS has been always praised for its speed of query processing. The hype about in-memory computing, together with EXASOL's effective reselling strategy in Europe and Israel, effected a wide customer adoption. Moreover EXASOL is further maturing its products. “We are proud to have
done this year a big step forward”, says Steffen Weissbarth, CEO of EXASOL AG. “With our expansion strategy and the planned product enhancements we are aiming to make the final leap in 2014 into the Leaders quadrant.”
In their annual report, Gartner analysts Mark A. Beyer, Donald Feinberg, Roxane Edjlali and Merv Adrian look into the DBMS market, evaluating the vendors for ability to execute and completeness of vision.
