The Best MADP

Data is the drivetrain of digital transformation and the enterprise with the ability to tap into all possible data sources in order to gain actionable insights is at a key advantage.

In order to gain this advantage, a Modern Analytics Data Platform (MADP) is required. What are the attributes of an MADP that make it the technological foundation of digital transformation?

Greenplum ranks high in every one of these attributes, ensuring the enterprise of continuous access to valuable insights.

In fact, Gartner has ranked Greenplum as the No. 1 open source Data Warehouse platform for 2019, with only the very costly Teradata and Oracle above it:

This combination of being a premier MADP and no-comparison cost-effectiveness makes Greenplum the leading choice for most enterprises seeking data-driven digital transformation.


Moving the Data Warehouse to the Cloud

There are many benefits to moving your enterprise data warehouse to the cloud aside from the more common advantages of mitigating the cost of and simplifying management, administration, and tuning activities.

The following are some of the more salient benefits:

1. Vertical and horizontal scalability – With the influx of ever-increasing volumes and varieties of data come the need to be able to add processing and storage capability to your existing data warehouse infrastructure in a quick and agile manner. This also includes the ability to scale out and add more nodes as the number of users increases.

2. Drastically-reduced start-up and operating costs – The risk of investing millions of dollars in on-premise machines or appliances only to have them become outdated in a number of years is eliminated with the cloud’s pay-only-for-what-you-use-when-you-use-it model.

3. Agile feature enhancement – Advances in data analytics call for products that are quick to adapt to these new features. The cloud infrastructure allows for seamless integration of new functionalities behind the scenes.

4. Top-notch support – Access to 24/7 support by a team of experts means that your system never has to go down, allowing for stellar SLA fulfillments.

5. Security – Since the top cloud providers are required to meet strict security standards set by health, financial, and government entities, you can be assured that your data is kept safe, making it easier to attain certifications like ISO27001, SOC2, GDPR, HIPAA, and PCI. Authorization, authentication, logging, and auditing are basic to all these platforms.
