Vectorwise Newsletter - August2012 - English
Welcome to this month's edition of our Actian Vectorwise newsletter. Here is the latest information and news on the record-breaking analytic database that is helping companies around the globe achieve the best price/performance ratio in order to monetize their Big Data.
Vertical spotlight focus - Analytic Service Provders / Data Aggregators
This month we are pleased to showcase the use of Vectorwise by organizations that are analytic service providers and data aggregators. Many companies in this space need to not only tell the BI and analytic story, they need to show it live in action. Unfortunately, in many cases, they do not have the right analytic and BI platform in order to show their clients what is actually possible with their data. This is where Actian Vectorwise is perfect for them - the record-breaking analytic platform not only helps you to talk about BI and analytics, but also show it too.

Vectorwise in the news
Here is an interesting article that showcases the need to think differently when looking to analyze more data more quickly. It seems the concept of doing the "same old, same old" just does not cut it anymore. It is time to stop thinking that more hardware is the answer to big data analytics.
Partner in the spotlight - Tableau Software
Actian partners with a number of BI application vendors in order to offer the perfect analytic and BI solution. We believe that Tableau Software is one of the most advanced BI application vendors and that their BI visualization tools complement Actian Vectorwise perfectly. It is no surprise that a number of our clients are also using Tableau Software to learn and do more with their data.
