Teradata Unveils Powerful Analytics Platform

The new platform enables analytic users throughout the organization to use their preferred analytic environment


Teradata, the leading data and analytics company, announced the Teradata Analytics Platform on October 23, 2017. This modern platform delivers access to the best functions and leading engines to enable users throughout the organization to leverage their preferred tools and languages, at scale, across multiple data types.

“In today’s environment many different users have many different analytic needs,” said Oliver Ratzesberger, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at Teradata. “This dynamic causes a proliferation of tools and approaches that are both costly and siloed. We solve this dilemma

Oliver Ratzesberger, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer at Teradata said, “Combined with the industry’s best scalability, elasticity and performance, the Teradata Analytics Platform drives superior business insight for our customers.”

Analysis of disparate data can require a wide variety of tools and techniques, demanding that the analyst bounce between languages, data formats, user interfaces and completely different systems. Relevant data must also be integrated and moved across systems.

With the Teradata Analytics Platform, many of these steps disappear or can be combined. Much of the data in this example would be already integrated within a single ecosystem, which can also easily support raw data from other sources. Now within a single workflow, users are able to switch between the most common interfaces and tools, including commercial and open source. The result is better, faster and more precise insights based on all data, rather than a subset.

Rajesh Shewani, Head - Technology and Solution Architecture, Teradata India said, “In today’s ever changing world, dynamic businesses need to constantly evolve and manage massive volumes and varieties of data. To enable them to do this, they require a solution that is agile, scalable and flexible with the ability to analyze any kind of data.”

Teradata Analytics Platform is part of Teradata Everywhere, a flexible, agile and scalable way to ensure high return on investments, while limiting the risk in making those investments. Key components of Teradata Everywhere include:

  • Analyze Anything – with Teradata Analytics Platform, enables users throughout the organization to use their preferred analytic tools and engines across data sources at scale
