Helzberg Selects Netezza

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- Netezza Corporation (NYSE Arca: NZ), the global leader in data warehouse and analytic appliances, today announced that Helzberg Diamonds has chosen the Netezza Performance ServerB. (NPSB.) appliance for its enterprise data warehouse (EDW) platform. Helzberg Diamonds operates more than 260 stores across the U.S., offering a wide selection of diamonds and precious gems in addition to watches for both men and women. The company has chosen Netezza for operational business intelligence (BI) applications, including real-time, point-of-sale reporting to aid in customer relationship management.

"We replaced our existing IBM infrastructure with Netezza due primarily to the significant performance gains demonstrated by the NPS system during an extensive evaluation period," stated Greg Backhus, director of data warehousing and business intelligence at Helzberg Diamonds. "Our incumbent data warehouse was struggling to process data in an acceptable timeframe, especially during our peak seasons. We look forward to leveraging the power of Netezza to optimize our operational BI and maximize customer satisfaction throughout Helzberg stores nationwide."
