Today marks the first day of the new blog by David Birmingham called “Netezza Underground”. As you may remember, IBM purchased Netezza not that long ago. To refresh your memory, here is a description in the Press Release, IBM Completes Acquisition Of Netezza:
Netezza data warehouse appliances bring analytics directly into the hands of business users within every department of an organization such as sales, marketing, product development and human resources. The simplicity of deploying Netezza appliances makes the technology ideal for the needs of high-performance analytics, requiring minimal administration and IT skills, and enables clients to run complex data queries within days of deploying the solution.
David’s first blog entry introduces the need for the blog and looks at the counter-intuitive nature of the product's internals. In future entries, he’ll answer questions about the technology as a seasoned expert. If you’re interested in business analytics, data warehousing, and big data, this is definitely a blog that you want to subscribe to.
So, who is David? He’s not an employee of IBM or Netezza. David is a consultant working for Bright Light Consulting and is a huge fan of the Netezza product and architecture. A few years ago he also wrote a Netezza book:
Netezza Underground: The unauthorized tales of derring-do and adventures in resilient data warehousing solutions.

I’m looking forward to learning more about Netezza via David’s blog.
