MetroPCS connects with Netezza's TwinFin

Wireless Provider Selects Netezza and ADRM Software for its Enterprise Date Warehouse

MARLBOROUGH, Mass., July 20, 2010 -- Netezza Corporation (NYSE: NZ), the global leader in data warehouse, analytic and monitoring appliances, today announced that MetroPCS Wireless, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of unlimited, flat-rate no annual contract wireless communications service, has selected the Netezza® TwinFin™ appliance and ADRM Software’s CDMA Wireless Data Model to be the foundation for its enterprise data warehouse (EDW).

By deploying Netezza’s TwinFin, MetroPCS has implemented an architecture that’s scalable for years of continued growth to assist with finance, revenue assurance and product performance.

“With Netezza, we are able to quickly process data, ensuring that we have access to the timeliest information when making critical business decisions,” said John Olsen, CIO, MetroPCS. “We researched a number of technology providers, including the tier 1 providers of enterprise data warehouse technologies, before selecting Netezza and ADRM Software. The combined solution provides the fastest time-to-value and gives us a more complete understanding of our data and overall product performance.”

“It’s critical that wireless service providers like MetroPCS are able to analyze and process data in real-time,” said John Gillespie, general manager and vice president of telecommunications at Netezza. “By gaining a broader and deeper view of its data across the organization and dramatically decreasing the time needed to process large volumes of information, MetroPCS will be able to reduce network costs, increase customer satisfaction and positively impact the bottom line.”

The Netezza data warehouse appliance is built specifically to analyze petabytes of detailed data significantly faster than other existing data warehouse options, at a much lower total cost of ownership. It stores, filters and processes 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 an organization.
