NUREMBERG, Germany, Feb. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- EXASOL, independent vendor of in-memory analytic database technology, has been placed in the new 2015 Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse and Data Management Solutions for Analytics*, authored by analysts Mark A. Beyer and Roxane Edjlali.
Providing the world's fastest and most cost-effective in-memory analytic database, EXASOL's customer base has grown by 90 percent in the last year, bringing the total number of customers using it to drive fast, actionable insights from their data to 80, spread across 12 countries. Satisfied customers include Badoo, the world's fastest growing social network for meeting new people; Dailyme, a leader in personalised news; Sensalytics, a provider of analytics tools for brick and mortar retailers and Zalando, an online fashion retailer.
Authors Beyer and Edjlali point out that: "EXASOL customer references constantly praise EXASOL for its performance, because it is an in-memory columnar DBMS, but also for its price. Its ability to manage hybrid disk and memory persistency allows customers to adjust price/performance and hardware needs."
Omar Tello, founder and CEO, Sensalytics, couldn't agree more and says: "EXASOL not only has superior technology, but the team is incredibly easy to work with. The door is always open at EXASOL and we've forged a really strong relationship with them. You get to have a direct connection with the people there. This was evident from the beginning of the relationship and we were able to find out quickly whether EXASOL was the right database for our needs. We spoke to other vendors and the level of customer service at EXASOL is exceptional compared to the rest. They are agile and incredibly quick and responsive to technical questions. We really like working with EXASOL."
Aaron Auld, EXASOL's CEO, says: "At the heart of EXASOL's success is its people and their passion. There is nothing more telling than satisfied customers and we are delighted to see this reflected in the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouse and Data Management Solutions for Analytics report. Our customers – some of which have migrated from the large vendors in an effort to seek simplicity – are always telling us that our technology 'just works' and needs very little maintenance and support for it to run. We make our customers' lives easy and enable them to do what they need to do with analytics."
As an independent vendor, EXASOL continues to build solid strategic partnerships with hardware, data visualisation, BI and cloud providers, bringing a best-of-breed offering to the market. It delivers unprecedented analytic performance, scalability and ease of use to its customers.
