Report cited Teradata a leader and top ranked among all vendors in enterprise data warehouse current offerings and strategy
DAYTON, Ohio, Dec. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Teradata Corp. (NYSE: TDC), the leading analytic data platforms, applications and services company, today announced that Forrester Research, Inc., a leading independent analyst firm, has cited Teradata as a leader in enterprise data warehouse (EDW) platforms. Teradata received the highest scores among all vendors in the "Current Offering" and "Strategy" categories. The report was released December 9th, 2013 as "The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Warehouse, Q4 2013, by Noel Yuhanna and Mike Gualtieri with Holger Kisker, Ph.D. and Sarah Bookstein.
Platforms have evolved significantly in the last few years, with Forrester commenting in the report that "Today's most demanding EDW environments support petabytes of aggregated data, billions of records, complex mixed-query workloads, and subsecond queries." Forrester's scores were based on "factors like performance, scalability, integration with Hadoop and data services, security, high availability, mixed workload management, and hardware optimization."
In the report, Forrester stated: "Teradata offers the most comprehensive and scalable EDW platform. Teradata has strong revenues, a solid installed base, good momentum, and partnerships in the EDW market. It has several differentiators, including one of the broadest sets of EDW packaging, licensing, pricing, and professional services options on the market, as well as certified integration with a broad range of partner applications and middleware components. It provides sophisticated functionality for in-database analytics, caching, compression, partitioning, indexing, cost-based query optimization, and workload management. It also provides in-database analytics, logical data models, user-defined functions, and stored procedures for EDW extensibility and customization. Teradata offers connectors to import and export data to and from Hadoop and also offers SQL-H and SQL-MapReduce as two options for executing queries against Hadoop. Teradata also offers [Teradata] Aster Big Analytics as an option for the EDW to provide advanced analytics capabilities such as path analysis."
"We are pleased that Forrester has once again confirmed Teradata's leadership in the latest Wave by ranking it the highest in both 'strategy' and 'current offering'. In fact, Teradata got a perfect score in 75 percent of the criteria evaluated, and is recognized for its 'razor sharp focus,'" said Bob Fair, Teradata Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Information Officer. "We believe the Forrester evaluation validates the Teradata® Unified Data Architecture™ and big data analytic capabilities, based on calculated and detailed criteria. This has strong implications for our community of customers, users, employees, and investors across the world. Entering 2014, our value proposition is stronger than ever."
"Teradata is thrilled to be recognized as a leader and innovator in the EDW industry," said Scott Gnau, President, Teradata Labs.
