An interesting move from EMC. First they signed a deal with ParAccel to provide stroage technology and now are acquiring Greenplum. This deal signifies the new war of worlds - HP, IBM, CISCO, EMC and Oracle will now fight a battle royale over Cloud Computing and in special mention DWBI and Analytics in the Cloud.

There are several things to understand in this move

1. Majir mover advantage for a commercial cloud provision - apart from Amazon
2. EMC establishing its presence as a player in the DWBI and Analytics space
3. The fact that BI in the cloud is a reality
4. The new platform for DWBI and Analytics may move out of SQL
5. DWBI as we know it will change

As we start moving from a SQL intensive DWBI to a non-SQL intensive BI, we will start looking at these kinds of platforms for a new alternative. Good news for all technology enthusiasts and Analytical BI users.

Another fact is now the DW Appliances Space has very few pure-play vendors - Netezza vs. AsterData is certainly the next battle
