Once a multi-day, Boston-based event, Enzee Universe is now part of the larger pantheon of Information OnDemand offerings. While the event has been condensed, its popularity certainly hasn’t suffered. It was standing room only as SVP of Worldwide Sales, Ray Tacoma took the stage to talk about the future of the Netezza business.
“A question I hear a great deal,” said Tacoma, “is ‘what’s going to happen to the Netezza brand. It’s a question I appreciate a great deal from customers who’ve used Netezza technology to shape their business. But, it might be the wrong question. The real question is ‘will our organization continue to benefit from transformative Netezza technology?”
In answer, Tacoma talked about the “Human Investment” that IBM has made in Netezza technology, citing IBM PureData for Analytics as a proof point
“Leveraging the IBM’s focus on broadening its portfolio of analytics technology, Netezza has doubled the size of its product development teams, doubled its sales force and through that ‘human investment’, it has doubled its number of new customers.”
Krishnan Parasuraman followed Tacoma to talk about the effect big data has had on accelerating insight and Phil Francisco closed the day by presenting IBMNetezza’s new product roadmap.
