GoodData Expands Its Open Cloud Strategy with Vertica Partnership

Combination Enables Highest Performance and Unlimited Scale for the Processing of Data and Distribution of Analytics

SAN FRANCISCO, March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, GoodData®, the leading platform in fully managed and scalable analytics, announced an expanded partnership with Vertica, an industry leading analytical database from Micro Focus built to provide the broadest range of deployment models, to continue the company’s mission to provide flexibility and openness with their embedded analytical applications. The expanded partnership provides infinite scalability and flexibility so GoodData and Vertica joint customers can glean insights 10-50 times faster than legacy databases and data warehouses.

The expanded partnership meets the demand of data-driven organizations seeking insight from massive volumes of data from connected products that comprise the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as from Energy and Telecommunications industries, without the limitations of traditional data warehouses. The IoT is projected to include over 20 billion connected devices by 2020, generating an unimaginable amount of data. Deriving and distributing insights of this magnitude will require the highest performance and unlimited scale from the power of the combined GoodData and Vertica solutions.

“The energy industry produces an inordinate amount of data and our customers require a fine-grained record of energy consumption made at regular intervals through the day, every day,” shares George Theofanous, Manager, CCA Applications, a department of Calpine Energy. “The GoodData and Vertica expanded partnership allows us to provide granular and actionable insights to our customers so they can make informed decisions around procurement and pricing.”

“This long-standing and evolving partnership allows GoodData to continue delivering on our mission to distribute easy-to-understand insights at massive scale while leveraging your current software and hardware investments,” states Roman Stanek, CEO and Founder. “GoodData plus Vertica is truly a match made in IoT heaven.”

“Furthering our relationship with GoodData enables us to extend our reach to companies struggling to quickly derive value from the growing volumes of sensor data from our increasingly connected world,” shares Colin Mahony, Senior Vice President/General Manager of Vertica at Micro Focus. “With Vertica and GoodData, insights are instantly available to data-driven organizations, enabling them to unlock the massive potential of IoT through our trusted partnership.”
