For several years Hewlett-Packard has been investing in its data warehouse technology, HP Neoview. The product dates from HP’s acquisition of Compaq in 2002, which acquired Tandem Computers in 1997 (a company started by HP engineers in the 1970s). The HP Neoview product line originates in what Tandem called NonStop SQL and now runs on the HP Neoview operating system. HP’s business intelligence (BI) offering also is called Neoview. I wrote about this product line in late 2008 (See: “Can HP Neoview Survive and Thrive?”); at the time, HP was engaged in a mutual effort with Oracle called Exadata. Of course, a lot has changed since then: Oracle has purchased Sun Microsystems and is pushing its database on the former Sun servers and storage. Since late 2008, HP has struggled in a very competitive environment at the high end of the data warehousing market and has not made significant front-office investments to promote its products. I recently had a chance to talk with the management and technology team of HP Neoview about their advancements over last six months and the direction they plan in the coming years.
