The Forrester Wave : Enterprise Data Warehouse, Q4 2015

White Papers > Big Data > The Forrester Wave : Enterprise Data Warehouse, Q4 2015

In the era of big data, enterprise data warehouse (EDW) technology continues to evolve as vendors focus on innovation and advanced features around in-memory, compression, security, and tighter integration with Hadoop, NoSQL, and cloud. Forrester identified the 10 most significant EDW software and services providers — Actian, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Pivotal Software, SAP, Snowflake Computing, and Teradata — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help enterprise architect professionals select the right solution to support their data warehouse platform.

Key Takeaways - Oracle, Teradata, IBM, SAP, AWS, And Microsoft Lead The Pack Forrester’s research uncovered a market in which Oracle, Teradata, IBM, SAP, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft lead the pack. Pivotal Software, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Actian, and Snowflake Computing offer competitive options. EDW Evolves Beyond Traditional Storage And Delivery The EDW market continues to evolve as enterprise architecture pros recognize that improved scalability, better performance, and deeper integration with Hadoop and NoSQL platforms will address their top challenges. Many EDW vendors are now offering tighter integration with dynamic random-access memory (DRAM), Flash, solid-state drive (SSD), and some distributed in-memory that spans across multinodes in a cluster to process larger amounts of data to support real-time analytics.
