February 25, 2008 – The Sherwin-Williams Company chose Netezza Corporation for the analysis of store performance and market basket information.


Sherwin-Williams is deploying a Netezza Performance Server (NPS) appliance to provide its business users with up-to-date information.


The NPS family of data warehouse and appliances are designed specifically for high-performance, terascale analytics and to architecturally integrate a relational database, server and storage into a single unit. The system’s advantage comes from its patented streaming architecture, which allows analysis to occur at the source at streaming speeds, delivering 10-100 times the performance of traditional systems.


Since migrating to Netezza, data query times at Sherwin-Williams have dropped significantly. Moving forward, Sherwin-Williams will use Netezza for extensive reporting of data to all levels of the organization.


“As the speed of business continues to accelerate, the need for timely information is essential in making the best management decisions,” said Emiro Uribe, manager systems development at Sherwin-Williams. “Speed and simplicity are very important to our users.”
