Coffing Data Warehousing Announces Partnership And OEM Deal

    Data Warehousing (Coffing DW), premier provider of software,
    education and publications covering data warehouses today
    announced it has signed a new partnership and original equipment
    manufacturer (OEM) deal with Microsoft Corporation. As a result,
    Coffing DW’s Nexus query tool will ship with every Microsoft SQL
    Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse.

    “It is a huge compliment when Microsoft chooses your software for
    their customers. It completely validates our customer centric and
    feature rich approach to building data warehouse software,” said
    Tom Coffing, CEO, of Coffing DW.

    “SQL Server 2008 R2 Parallel Data Warehouse customers will find
    value in interoperable, integrated query tools like the Nexus which
    works with all leading databases and works seamlessly in a
    Microsoft Windows desktop environment.” said Quentin Clark,
    general manager, SQL Server, at Microsoft Corp. “This solution
    provides an excellent experience for IT and business users
    querying and managing large data warehouse database systems.”

    The Nexus queries every major database, graphs and charts data,
    pivots data, and even allows users to join answer sets from
    completely different systems. The Nexus does almost everything
    and anything that that a user, DBA, manager, or analyst needs.
    Customers have expressed how beneficial it is to be able to
    perform their jobs with one easy-to-use tool that can be used across
    the entire enterprise. Partners benefit because their systems can be
    integrated into any environment and their customers can instantly
    begin to reap the full potential of their system, while also being able
    to bring together data from other systems. The Nexus was designed
    by Coffing so all large systems could be queried simultaneously
    and seamlessly.

    Coffing DW was founded in 1994 and is highly respected in the data
    warehousing industry for its Teradata expertise in providing books,
    training, services and software. Coffing, better known as Tera-Tom,
    in 2004 decided to make CoffingDW a vendor neutral company.
    Coffing then allowed partners and customers to download the
    Nexus from their website and then worked to implement requested

    “Although I have a long history of working with Teradata users,
    several years ago I started researching other data warehouse
    technology to see if it could provide a lower cost alternative,” said
    Tom Coffing, CEO of Coffing DW. “After looking at the various
    platforms available, I found Microsoft’s offering to be particularly
    compelling. Microsoft’s high quality and low cost approach, coupled
    with an incredible Massively Parallel Processing (MPP) architecture
    has the potential to change the data warehouse industry forever,
    and I am thrilled The Nexus will be part of that”.
