CoffeeCAST – #36 – Netezza and their new CTO

Coffeecup_26 Welcome to the 36th CoffeeCAST with Stephen Hayward of Project X.  I have been busy at work and not had a lot of time for a leisurely chat over coffee.  But I have come back with a great guest today.

So join Graham and I as we welcome Justin Lindsay as the new CTO of Netezza.  He is a self proclaimed Engineer/Tinkerer who has been evaluating emerging technology in the public sector and jumped at the opportunity to join some friends over at Netezza.  So grab a cup of Java as we join Justin over the phone and cover items like:

  • The story – Justin’s background and how he ended up at Netezza
  • A big win at Catalina that is proving out the current abilities of Netezza
  • The history of a purpose built – deep analytics tool that is fast and inexpensive
  • What is Justin Going to do:
    1. Find new ways to use the existing technology to empower his customers to question everything.  Answering those hard questions that could not be answered before.
    2. Leverage and grow the distinct order of magnitude of performance.
    3. The Deep Analytics Environment and where does it go:
      • Netezza as an EDW (Enterprise Data Warehouse)
      • SOA – Service Oriented Architecture
      • Interfaces which are tight and closely coupled.

    Thanks to Brian DeMichele from Schwartz Communications for facilitating this and please note that Project X is a partner of Netezza.
