YELLOWFIN CERTIFIES ON VECTORWISE TO DELIVER UNBEATABLY FAST, EASY BI

SYDNEY, MARCH 29, 2011 – International Business Intelligence (BI) software vendor, Yellowfin, has partnered with data management experts, Ingres Corporation, certifying Yellowfin’s market-leading ease-of-use BI solution with Ingres Vectoriwse, the record-breaking fast analytical database.

The partnership means that Yellowfin and Vectoriwse will be sold as a complete enterprise reporting and analytics solution. The deal delivers the world’s fastest and easiest to use total business analytics package, at a price point that makes world-class BI accessible to everyone.

‘For years, BI and data warehousing companies have delivered products only affordable for organizations at the very top end of town,’ said Director and Co-Founder, Justin Hewitt. ‘Combining Yellowfin and Vectoriwse offers a business analytics package unparalleled in performance, speed, cost effectiveness, and ease-of-use,’ said Hewitt.

In February, Vectoriwse smashed the Transaction Processing Performance Council’s TPC-H benchmark for the fastest analytical database at 100GB on a single cluster, delivering 340% of the previous record (251,561 QphH@100GB on a single HP ProLiant DL380 G7 system, availability date March 31, 2011).

‘Yellowfin is an ideal partner for Ingres,’ said Fred Gallagher, General Manager for the Vectoriwse business unit. ‘Our values and mission are well aligned, with Yellowfin’s BI solution and Ingres’ Vectoriwse database delivering easy-to-use, high performing products at a palatable price tag,’ said Gallagher.

‘Yellowfin is one of the fastest growing BI platforms and is incredibly easy to use, integrate and embed. We are delighted to partner with Yellowfin and offer customers a complete solution to address their growing reporting and analytical needs.’

The partnership also addresses the growing need for analytics and BI, as corporate data volumes rapidly expand, and organizations realize the benefits of up-to-the-minute data analysis, with its ability to facilitate sustained competitive advantage through fact-based strategic decision-making.

‘Organizations from across all industries, particularly data aggregators and those with large data volumes, now have the ability to achieve unmatched ROI through faster reporting and analytics, at a fraction of the cost, with less complexity,’ said Yellowfin CEO and Co-founder, Glen Rabie. ‘There’s no need for costly hardware upgrades or BI tuning to easily achieve data analysis of big data stores at record-breaking pace with minimal demand on IT resources.’

The growth of digital data worldwide is accelerating at an unprecedented rate, and according to recent research, computing storage capacity is growing at around 58 percent per year. The ability for enterprises to capture, collate and analyze organizational data is becoming simultaneously more important and difficult to manage.

‘The demand for new-generation business analytics solutions – comprising agile BI and analytical database technology that have the capacity to quickly, effectively and efficiently produce actionable intelligence from large data volumes – is set to skyrocket,’ said Gallagher. ‘With Yellowfin and Vectoriwse, you can deliver easy to use reporting and analytics faster, which is what today’s users expect.’
