Burlington Coat selects Netezza as its data warehouse platform
Aug '08
Netezza Corporation, the global leader in data warehouse appliances, announced that Burlington Coat Factory has deployed Netezza for its data warehousing operations. Netezza, together with MicroStrategy and QuantiSense, will run merchandising analysis on terabytes of the retailer's data.

Burlington Coat Factory is a nationally recognized retailer of high-quality, branded apparel at every day low prices, currently operating 397 stores in 44 states. Burlington Coat Factory's stores offer an extensive selection of in-season better and moderate brands, fashion-focused merchandise, including: ladies sportswear, menswear, coats, family footwear, baby furniture and accessories, as well as home décor and gifts.

The retailer needed a data warehouse system that could keep pace with its growing data volumes and need to have a view across more historical data. “We chose Netezza because we were impressed with the system's simplicity and high performance for loading and querying data,” said Brad Friedman, senior vice president of IS, Burlington Coat Factory. “Netezza's proven track record with other brand name retailers was also a key selling point for us.”

“There is significant business value for a complete retail data warehouse solution offering for the retail industry and Netezza has had strong customer adoption and success with our solution partners,” said Jim Kelly, vice president, Retail & CPG, Netezza. “The Netezza, MicroStrategy and QuantiSense joint solution provides a powerful business tool for Burlington Coat Factory to identify trends and turn data into action.”

The Netezza data warehouse appliance is built specifically to analyze terabytes of detailed data significantly faster than existing data warehouse options, at a much lower total cost of ownership. They store, filter and process terabytes of records within a single unit, analyzing only the relevant information for each query.

Netezza has placed the CPU power next to the data, allowing its appliances to speed through processes that would occupy most data warehouse systems for hours, or even days, thereby enabling dramatic increases in productivity across organizations like Burlington Coat Factory.
