Christmas of 2008 was memorable for Data Warehouse Appliance vendors. Gartner's latest Magic quadrant, released on December 23 2008, positions several vendors in significant positions from the last year. Whatever be the underlying criteria, my predictions about data warehouse appliances going mainstream is indeed happening. Year 2009 will be a significant year for all types of data warehouse appliances and their vendors. In the first quarter of this year, I will be announcing my own analyst positioning of the data warehouse appliance vendors. Watch my channel for details.

Wishing all of you a happry new year 2009.
