Deeper Insights = Greater Value
Most analytic platforms are limited to structured data and require the use of summary data, cubes, or subsets of the raw data which ultimately dilute the value and insights possible. With the Vertica Analytics PlatformTM, companies are empowered to analyze all of their data while maintaining detail level granularity and applying advanced analytics, including geospatial, statistical, time-series, pattern matching, and an SDK for custom procedural programming. These unique capabilities facilitate actionable insights - the ability to engage and take action upon information while it maintains relevance and value, leading Vertica customers to separate themselves from the pack by getting value from “massive skyscraper sized chunks of data."
