Securely integrate Vertica Analytics Platform with Aftership
About Vertica Analytics Platform
Vertica Analytics Platform is a data warehouse management system optimized for large-scale, rapidly-growing datasets. By using a column-oriented architecture (instead of row-oriented), Vertica can offer high-speed query performance for your business intelligence, machine learning, and other query-intensive systems. Vertica is compatible with a variety of cloud data warehouse servers such as Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, Microsoft Azure, and on-premises. The platform also offers its “Eon Mode,” which achieves optimum performance by separating computational processes from storage processes. Eon Mode is available when hosting the platform on AWS or when using Pure Storage Flashblade on-premises. Vertica is an open-source product that is free to use up to certain data limitations.
Aftership is a shipment tracking platform designed to be built into a company’s website as a branded tracking page. It provides customers with details about a shipment, including what courier is delivering the package, where it is, and when it is estimated to be delivered. For the retailer, Aftership reduces logistical workload by monitoring the status of a shipment and automatically sending updates to customers as that status changes. It also helps retailers identify and respond to problems in their delivery systems by providing analytic reports on how many shipments were sent, delivered, lost, etc.

Vertica Analytics Platform's End Points
Vertica Massively Parallel Processing (MPP)
Through its MPP architecture, Vertica distributes requests across different nodes. This brings the benefit of virtually unlimited linear scalability.
Vertica Column-Oriented Storage
Veritica's column-oriented storage architecture provides faster query performance when managing access to sequential records. This advantage also has the adverse effect of slowing down normal transactional queries like updates, deletes, and single record retrieval.
Vertica Workload Management Automation
With its workload management features, Vertica allows you to automate server recovery, data replication, storage optimization, and query performance tuning.
Vertica Machine Learning Capabilities
Vertica includes a number of machine learning features in-database. These include 'categorization, fitting, and prediction,' which bypasses down-sampling and data movement for faster processing speed. There are also algorithms for logistic regression, linear regression, Naive Bayes classification, k-means clustering, vector machine regression/classification, random forest decision trees, and more.
Vertica In-Built Analytics Features
Through its SQL-based interface, Vertica provides developers with a number of in-built data analytics features such as event-based windowing/sessionization, time-series gap filling, event series joins, pattern matching, geospatial analysis, and statistical computation.
Vertica SQL-Based Interface
Vertica's SQL based interface makes the platform easy to use for the widest range of developers.
Vertica Shared-Nothing Architecture
Vertica's shared-nothing architecture is a strategy that lowers system contention among shared resources. This offers the benefit of slowly lowering system performance when there is a hardware failure.
Vertica High Compression Features
Vertica batches updates to the main store. It also saves columns of homogenous data types in the same place. This helps Vertica achieve high compression for greater processing speeds.
Vertica Kafka and Spark Integrations
Vertica features native integrations for a variety of large-volume data tools. For example, Vertica includes a native integration for Apache Spark, which is a general-purpose distributed data processing engine. It also includes an integration for Apache Kafka, which is a messaging system for large-volume stream processing, metrics collection/monitoring, website activity tracking, log aggregation, data ingestion, and real-time analytics.
Vertica Cloud Platform Compatibility
Vertica runs on a variety of cloud-based platforms including Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, and on-premises. It can also run natively using Hadoop Nodes.
Vertica Programming Interface Compatibility
Vertica is compatible with the most popular programming interfaces such as OLEDB, ADO.NET, ODBC, and JDBC.
Vertica Third-Party Tool Compatibility
A large number of data visualization, business intelligence, and ETL (extract, transform, load) tools offer integrations for Vertica Analytics Platform. For example, Xplenty's ETL-as-a-service tool offers a native integration to connect with Vertica.
Aftership's End Points
Create or receive tracking details for a shipment, including its carrier, destination, tracking number and the checkpoints that it has reached. This data can be used to set up customer alerts or to provide detailed analytics about your shipment history.
Retrieve a list of couriers that are activated on your Aftership account or related to a tracking number for a specific shipment. The returned data will include the name of the courier, their contact information - website, phone number, etc. - and the fields required to track shipments that they are delivering.
Aftership Last Checkpoint
Receive information about the last checkpoint that a shipment has reached, including the courier, location, status, and the time that it reached the checkpoint. Then, you can use this data to send status updates to customers containing the most recent information available for their deliveries.
Get a list of which customers receive notifications for a particular tracking number and how they receive them i.e. via email, SMS, etc. Then, use this endpoint to add or remove customers from that list to ensure that customers only receive relevant notifications in their preferred manner.
