In today's press release about this acquisition, Steve Mills, senior vice president and group executive, IBM Software and Systems, says:
"IBM is bringing analytics to the masses. We continue to evolve our capabilities for systems integration, bringing together optimized hardware and software, in response to increasing demand for technology that delivers true business value.Netezza is a perfect example of this approach. Netezza strongly complements our business analytics capabilities and client base. Together, we have the opportunity to quickly leverage the technology and accelerate the offering."That leaves Vertica as the largest pure-play appliance vendor in the market and makes me wonder if HP or Dell will make a play for them or if one of those two will consider the purchase of Teradata.
Bill Hewitt, Kalido's president and CEO, has this comment about today's news:
"IBM's acquisition of Netezza gives it a significant edge over the other megavendors. Businesses need information management solutions that enable them to quickly deliver business value, and Netezza's ability to handle complex analytic queries goes a long way to meeting that need. Netezza running Kalido further enhances this solution giving customers unmatched flexibility coupled with Netezza's unmatched performance."
