Actian Signs Reseller Agreement with Infotopics to Deliver Big Data Insight

Dutch Solutions Provider pairs Actian Vectorwise with Tableau Software to provide super fast, actionable Business Intelligence at a highly competitive price

Redwood City, USA – 24th July 2012Actian Corporation today announced that it has signed a reseller agreement with Infotopics, an expert in information-management solutions in the Netherlands. As an existing Tableau partner, Infotopics will offer its customers Actian’s record-breaking database management software, Vectorwise, as the engine behind Tableau’s Business Intelligence (BI) and data visualization tool.

By combining best-of-breed analytical database technology with world-class visualization software, Infotopics will provide small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) in the Netherlands with industrial-strength data analytics that can be viewed and manipulated through a user friendly interface at one of the best price/performance ratios available.

The innovative solution will address the gap created by high-end analytical databases that offer great performance at a hefty price tag. A viable alternative for the underserved majority, it will enable organizations seeking fast analytical performance to deploy record-beating analytics and business intelligence at a highly competitive price.

“Today, if you were to write the total amount of data generated in the world every day on sheets of paper and then stack them, they would stretch to the moon and back. In a few years, this stack would stretch daily to Pluto and back,” commented Richard Sanchez, Senior Sales Executive, Infotopics. “As such, big data and ever-increasing data volumes is a given. What companies need is a fast, innovative analytic database that offers record performance at a price that does not break the bank and one that will continue to cope with the increasing data volumes coming down the line.

“In addition to data volumes, it is also the complexity and variety of the data being captured that impacts database software performance. With Actian, we can now give our customers a future-proof alternative to relational databases that can handle both high volumes and the complex character of data.”

“A picture is worth a thousand words: by pairing Actian’s Vectorwise, the analytics database that offers one of the best price/performance ratios with a cutting-edge data visualization tool from Tableau, Infotopics are enabling clients to access actionable BI in a simple, digestible format,” commented Steve Shine, CEO of Actian. “Infotopics is one of our first resellers in the Netherlands and we are excited to be part of this partnership.”
