Compass Group has overhauled its entire business intelligence infrastructure and deployed a Netezza data warehouse appliance.
The new solution allows the business to process high volumes of data and run complex reports in minutes, bringing down cycle times substantially. With rising volumes of data within the business, Compass identified a need for a more robust and reliable infrastructure to deliver BI and MIS.
“We are confident that we have chosen the right data warehouse appliance to give us that all-important competitive advantage with our data,” says Simon Marsh, IT director at Compass Group UK and Ireland. “When we asked vendors to undertake a Proof of Concept, Netezza clearly outperformed the rest and showed impressive speed improvements over the existing SQL Server environment of over 20 times.”
