Zavarovalnica Maribor Chooses Netezza

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia -- Netezza (NYSE Arca: NZ) today announced that Slovenias second largest insurance company, Zavarovalnica Maribor (ZM), has moved its enterprise data warehouse from Oracle to Netezza in order to perform analysis such as long-term car and home insurance trends, not previously possible on its legacy systems. All corporate business intelligence (BI) and operational reporting has been migrated to a Netezza data warehouse appliance that is delivering significantly improved performance. ZM expects to not only future-proof its business against rising data volumes, but to better support its marketing function with more sophisticated and targeted segmentation for campaign management.

Darko Veleski Bratec, Head of Business Intelligence explained, "We faced a complex challenge to deliver rich content, superior functionality and better performance from the data warehouse. It had been our single biggest ongoing IT challenge for several years. Against a backdrop of budget pressures, the business was demanding better data, more regularly; wanting to switch from monthly to daily reports."
