May 12, 2008 - Marshfield Clinic, one of the largest private, multispecialty group practices in the U.S., selected the Netezza appliance as its strategic data warehouse platform.


Marshfield Clinic provides primary, secondary and tertiary care in more than 40 locations throughout Wisconsin. The Clinic system also includes clinical laboratory services.


“Analyzing our financial and operational performance and our clinical information helps the clinic provide for our patients’ needs - now and in the future,” said Carl Christensen, chief information officer, Marshfield Clinic. “Netezza’s performance in terms of handling data loads and query responses is tremendous, improving our responsiveness and represents a fraction of the initial and long-term cost of older enterprise data warehouse approaches.”


The Netezza Performance Server family of data warehouse and analytic appliances is designed specifically for high-performance, terascale analytics and architecturally integrates a relational database, server and storage into a single compact and power-efficient unit.
