“We turned to Greenplum because its massively parallel data warehousing approach is the only one robust and cost effective to grow with us over time.”
Walter Young, SVP Corporate Finance, Zions Bancorporation
Zions Bancorporation is one of the nation’s premier financial services companies, consisting of a collection of great banks in select high growth markets. Zions operates its banking businesses under local management teams and community identities through approximately 500 offices in ten Western and Southwestern states.
In order to support both their current data warehouse needs as well as future data growth in support of Zions' acquisition strategy, the leadership at Zions sought a solution that could easily expand to encompass a wide range of data marts, analytics and reporting requirements.
