comment How to architect an analytical BI platform?
You can try browsing around vertica.com or third party vendors for white papers or use cases. If you choose Vertica, architecture could be part of the work. In regards to your earlier comment, I'm pretty sure Vertica has a much lower cost of ownership than other EDW. Feel free to reach out privately (send me a message at vertica.tips) and we can discuss further.

comment Which of these two queries is better - can be optimized more?
I doubt you'll get a general consensus. Too much is "it depends." You may want to add those types of things (EXPLAIN statements) to your question.

comment Column to Row and Vice Versa
What you're looking for is called a pivot; which is not easy with MySQL. I would recommend that you search Stack Overflow for similar issues and start there.
