Emerging business analytics needs are exposing limitations in traditional database management technologies and fueling the growth of highly specialized analytics platforms, according to a report by two leading industry analysts.
The new products are designed to analyze large and diverse data sets more efficiently than traditional database management products allow. And they integrate new database and storage management technologies to enable more efficient data management and retrieval capabilities, the report said.
The report, prepared for Beye Network by Merv Adrian, principal at IT Market Strategy, and Colin White, president of DataBase Associates Inc. and founder of BI Research, was sponsored by eight vendors of the new technologies. It incorporates feedback from 168 enterprises that are not currently using the new technologies.
