Actian Releases Vectorwise Workgroup Edition, Big Data Analytics

Closes the gap that exists between the analytics needs of mid-market companies or Workgroups within larger organizations

Actian Corporation (formerly Ingres Corp.), on Tuesday announced that Vectorwise Workgroup Edition is available for download and purchase. Vectorwise Workgroup Edition is specifically packaged to address the growing technology needs of mid-sized businesses as well as Workgroups within larger organizations by providing them with the power and speed of Vectorwise, the industry's fastest data analytics engine, at an affordable cost.

Vectorwise Workgroup Edition closes the gap that exists between the analytics needs of mid-market companies or Workgroups within larger organizations, and the options available. Most can't afford expensive solutions from Oracle, IBM or Teradata, and lack the time and expertise to get the most out of legacy technologies in order to satisfy users' needs for performance and agility. Vectorwise Workgroup Edition delivers significant performance improvements over legacy technologies such as Microsoft SQL Server at an affordable price allowing organizations to move from data to insight to actions in a matter of days or hours.

"Mid-market organizations and Workgroups have business challenges that require enterprise-class technology" said Steve Shine, CEO of Actian. "Yet, they don't have enterprise-sized resources in the way of IT staff or large budgets for projects, especially uncertain ones. They for sure don't have a lot of time to play around with technology. Vectorwise Workgroup Edition allows these organizations to leverage the same analytic firepower that's available to the enterprise in order to increase the performance of their business and seize upon new revenue streams with extraordinarily modest hardware requirements."

Vectorwise Workgroup Edition brings mid-market organizations and Workgroups the ability to get the answers they need immediately and without the uncertainty, cost and resources needed to run other technologies.

The platform enables companies and their business users to uncover deep insights from their data at a rapid pace. Whether it is analyzing streaming financial data, determining real time point of sale information in retail, or analysing user behavior on social media websites, Vectorwise has helped companies of all sizes better realise the value of their data- all without the overhead associated with traditional analytic databases.

Workgroup Edition is powered by Vectorwise, a revolutionary record-breaking database engine written from the ground up to leverage modern chips and memory whilst providing familiar industry-standard SQL-based interfaces and certifications with all major Business Intelligence tools. Vectorwise has shattered several industry benchmark records in performance and affordability.
