  • Teradata rated number one for current offering in first-ever enterprise data warehousing report by leading independent analyst firm

    (EMAILWIRE.COM, February 20, 2009 ) Hong Kong - Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), the world's largest company solely focused on data warehousing and enterprise analytics, announced that Forrester Research, a leading independent analyst firm, has rated Teradata the industry's number one enterprise data warehouse (EDW) platform in the "Current Offering" category. The ranking was released Friday, 6 February in "The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Data Warehousing Platforms, Q1 2009," authored by James Kobielus, senior analyst, data warehousing.

    "Teradata's longtime leadership in the EDW market, coupled with a substantial installed base among large enterprises and an appliance-based product strategy that is growing ever more scalable, modular and cost-competitive, gives it a strong competitive advantage," wrote James Kobielus. "Forrester expects that Teradata will leverage these strengths, plus strategic partnerships such as SAS for in-database analytics, to grow its share of the EDW market among all customer segments."

    The report is the first of its kind issued by Forrester for the enterprise data warehousing market. It comes at a time when economics and affordability are top-of-mind as companies make judicious decisions regarding information technology investments.

    "With an increased focus on offering price-competitive EDW offerings for all customer segments, Teradata positions its mature, widely adopted EDW appliances to push the industry envelope in affordability," wrote Kobielus. "Teradata offers a best-of-breed solution portfolio, including its 5550, 2550 and 550 EDW appliances models, as well as standalone software licenses for its database, tools and utilities."

    Forrester awarded Teradata "Perfect" scores in numerous categories, notably in the categories "Professional Services", "Corporate Direction" and "Product Direction". Teradata also received perfect scores in:

    — Scalability, performance and optimisation
    — High availability and reliability
    — Query flexibility
    — Security
    — Execution flexibility
    — Deployment flexibility
    — Information life-cycle management
    — Administration and management

    "We are excited about Forrester's new EDW WAVE report and believe companies making data warehouse platform decisions will value its objectivity," said Darryl McDonald, Teradata chief marketing officer. "The evaluation positions us as number one for current offering in enterprise data warehousing, based on 54 criteria. That's a powerful position based on years of dedicated focus by Teradata, with direct implications for our community of customers, users, employees and investors across the world."

    In October, Teradata added an Extreme Data Appliance to the Teradata Purpose-Built Platform Family, which includes the Teradata Data Mart Appliance, the Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance and the Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse platforms. Within weeks the company announced Teradata Accelerate, bundled business solution packages of comprehensive hardware, Teradata database, software and services. The packages enable companies to rapidly deploy and realise value from their data warehouse investment.

    Teradata's industry-leading database, scalable platform performance and 30 years of customer success have established the company as an innovative leader in data warehousing, according to the CMO. "Teradata offers a very attractive business proposition embraced by a global community of cutting-edge business users," said McDonald. "Teradata has in effect become a worldwide 'movement' - with all the momentum and excitement that this implies. In the future, expect to see Teradata everywhere."

    Teradata's innovative active data warehousing approach uniquely addresses the need to manage increasingly complex queries and mixed workloads with real-time agility. In addition, the Teradata 13 database is the first with Teradata Virtual Storage capability, making it economical to leverage a new class of data with faster data loading into the data warehouse.
