Netezza Corporation, a leading provider of data warehousing, analytical and monitoring appliances, made an announcement that Clearwater Seafoods Ltd., has deployed a data warehouse solution in its company with a view to acquire deep business insights in the company data and gain an overall view of the operations of the company.
Clearwater, a leader in the seafood industry, is a fast growing Canadian enterprise operating a huge fleet of vessels and numerous processing plants in eastern Canada. Clearwater has combined its innovative product designs, technological advancements and marketing strategies to maintain its operations worldwide. The data warehouse solution provided by Netezza enables Clearwater to integrate data situated at various sources in order to provide various organizations of users all through the company with only one single view of the company’s operations. The first data warehouse appliance purchased by Clearwater was brought in for production within two months of its buying.
Manager of System Development at Clearwater, Fran MacDonald, said that as the business of the company expands, it is very important to keep a tab on the company’s supply chain. He continued saying that with the integration of Netezza’s data warehousing solution, the company has moved from a situation where every group saw only its own data to an enterprise view where user groups have access to consolidated and consistent data. He also added that the company is better equipped for taking business decisions with the evaluation of each product’s profitability based on the inventory, margins, demand, supply and value.
The data warehouse appliance has been particularly built by Netezza for analyzing perabytes of information at an optimum speed which is way faster than earlier data warehouse solutions existent in the market and that too at a very less ownership cost. The software maintains the storage of terabytes if data in a single unit and also filters and processes the records by conducting an analysis of the information that is relevant for each query.
