Facebooktwitteryoutubetumblrmail

Gartner’s data warehouse report for 2013 reveals Teradata’s lead ahead of IBM and Oracle, with Microsoft and SAP not far behind. Here’s a short overview of the data warehousing competitor comparison.

Report Trends

2012 saw the growth of the database management system (DBMS) market revenue by approximately 10% in spite of the troubling economy. This is of key importance considering that data warehouses can be deployed on a DBMS platform. Although the top three contenders IBM, Oracle and Teradata, struggled to maintain a clear lead over one another in 2012, they exist as leaders in their own right amongst their unique consumer base and have impressed by delivering on their individual visions and plans for revised offerings. Vendors considered in the report were required to have a DBMS product as part of its product set for most of 2012. Product acquisitions made by vendors prior to 30 June 2012 were also included in the report’s analysis.

Overview of key players

Gartner’s revised report dated 6 February 2013, shares key insights into each vendor’s strengths and cautions. Looking at the top three market players as reported by Gartner’s 2013 Data Warehouse Magic Quadrant, strengths and challenges of the industry’s main competitors are highlighted below:

 

Teradata

2012 was a promising year for Teradata, which has more than 1200 global customers, the majority of whom demand production data warehouses. With more than 3 decades worth of establishing a dominant presence in the data warehouse market under its belt, Teradata (www.teradata.com) has grown to offer an impressive product mix of both traditional and emerging logical data warehouse solutions, which includes the Teradata database and the Aster Database.

Teradata’s strengths include the following:

  • Role as a vision leader for the logical data warehouse
  • Position as an experienced market leader encouraging formulation of best practices and new product innovation
  • Diverse product set that features the continuous expansion of functions and features
  • Well-earned customer loyalty and product durability
  • Broad geographic reach amongst different industries from telecommunications and IT services to healthcare, manufacturing and several other industries.
  • Low to none staffing requirements when performing product upgrades.

Teradata’s challenges are listed as the following:

  • Unexplained delay or reluctance to offer new version upgrades
  • Lack of skilled personnel for customer support
  • Inadequate support for its more advanced products

 

Oracle

With a broad product range, Oracle (www.oracle.com) offers its 400,000 global customers several data warehouse solutions to suit their needs.

Oracle’s strengths include the following:

  • Matches supply with demand in the data warehouse market with its wide range of offerings that have a broad appeal
  • Leader in the DBMS industry and positive penetration in many vertical markets
  • Regular function and feature advances and good version-currency amongst Oracle customers

The challenges facing Oracle at present include:

  • Perceived poor customer experiences regarding account management
  • Strategic compatibility is of concern to customers
  • Difficulty in growing existing customer base

 

IBM

IBM’s (www.ibm.com) combination of DBMS solutions and data warehouse appliances has earned it thousands of global DBMS customers.

IBM’s strengths include the following:

  • Impressive logical data warehouse practices capable of guiding it to becoming one of the visionary market leaders
  • New PureData System appliances directed at data warehousing and analytics
  • Global support, sales and delivery
  • Exclusive customer commitment
  • Improved end-user experience, product pricing and performance
  • Enhanced performance, pricing and end-user involvement

Cautions for IBM include the following:

  • Need for experienced industry support to deal with the complexity IBM product implementation
  • Need for growth of IBM’s mind share in the data warehouse and analytics data management arena
  • Absence of market awareness of IBM’s appealing product pricing and quality support
  • Poor in-memory DBMS capabilities compared to competitors

 

Trends for 2013 and beyond

With the significant impact that the emergence of the logical data warehouse in 2012 has had on customer’s visions, it appears that the logical data warehouse is the data warehouse architecture of choice for the future. An effective data warehouse comprising warehousing and analytics data management best practices remain a pre-requisite for customers to achieve their goals.
