IBM® Netezza® Analytics is a purpose-built advanced analytics platform that enables your enterprise to get the most out of its data, giving you quicker answers to increasingly complex questions. It is the simple appliance for serious analytics. Your organization has spent millions of dollars implementing a data warehouse or data mart using the corporate standard database, such as Oracle or Teradata. After all, in-house expertise is available for these databases and volume purchase discounts and site license agreements with the vendors are in place. But despite the considerable expertise, service breaches are occurring frequently, users are dissatisfied with the response they are getting, a backlog of enhancements is mounting and any big ideas your organization has about extending Business Intelligence (BI) has dissipated. Faced with these problems, you have employed large teams of database administrators to tune the database to make it respond better to complex queries and you have upgraded your system as far as your budget will allow. But all of this is in vain: every step you take just seems to bring you right back to the beginning. The fourth generation of Netezza appliances, The IBM® Netezza® 1000 data warehouse appliance, is the first in a family of four appliances which comprises a high-capacity system that scales to five petabytes, a memory-intensive system for extreme performance and an entry level system. The Netezza data warehouse appliance is proven to provide true business value to customers very quickly with minimal investments of money, time, and effort. Netezza simplified analytics for companies drowning in data and struggling to find the processing speed and power to analyze and understand what it all meant. As a data warehouse appliance, Netezza combines storage, processing, database and analytics into a single system that delivers 10-100x the performance, at half the cost and one-third the power of other approaches. 4A Solutions’s goal is to:
- Offer high-value products and services that help Client’s businesses to utilize Netezza technology to the fullest extent to drive benefits
- Build teams that execute Netezza based projects methodically and effectively
- Establish 4A Solutions as a leader in the implementation of Netezza based Business Intelligence solutions
During 2012 the Department of Information Resources (DIR) distributed an RFO to solicit responses from IT vendors, for the purpose of creating a list of pre-approved vendors, based on experience and references. On December 11, 2012, 4A Solutions was chosen by DIR to be awarded a contract under the DBITS solicitation. This new contracting vehicle for state agencies (and other governmental entities) offered a way to streamline the process that agencies go through to acquire outsourced services for projects.

The SOW is developed by the agency team and is used to identify the specific services to be performed by the vendor to fulfill its contractual obligations for projects expected to be less than $10M. The SOW will indicate the type, level, quantity, and quality of service as well as the time constraint for the delivery of the project components. Based on our 18 years of successful service delivery in Texas public sector and excellent references 4A Solutions, LLC. deliverables based services contract number DIR-SDD-2153 is available for the following project categories:
