By Aviv Kaufmann and Kerry Dolan, Senior Validation Analysts


esg-economic-validation-yellowbrick-1ESG recently completed a quantitative economic analysis of Yellowbrick Data Warehouse as compared with alternative solutions such as specialized on-premises EDWs, cloud-only EDWs, and Apache Impala implementations.

Through customer interviews, ESG found that Yellowbrick Data Warehouse for hybrid and multi-cloud environments provided organizations with improved and predictable performance, operational simplicity, and deployment flexibility with a cost-effective, fixed-cost, subscription-based licensing model. Through these benefits, ESG’s modeled scenarios predicted that Yellowbrick can:

  • Lower expected three-year total cost of ownership by up to 75% when compared with alternative on-premises enterprise data warehouse solutions.
  • Save customers 33-81% compared to cloud-only data warehouse solutions.
  • a 78% to 333% return on investment by providing additional analytics capabilities to Hadoop environments.
