A lot of companies have performance, scaling and administration challenges with existing analytical environment including Oracle Exadata, IBM Netezza or PureData, Microsoft OLAP cubes or SAP Hana.

The performance problems exist on both sides:

  • data preparation performance issues, where night is not long enough anymore to process all required data.
  • analytical performance problems, where more and more users are requesting results from increased ad-hoc usage faster and faster, but the system is actually slower and slower.
