Teradata Analytics Review

Runs complete data sets with no sampling, but we have struggled with uptime

What is our primary use case?

I use Aster Analytics in our Marketing group for analyzing customer interactions and paths that lead to churn. We have a system with 50 hosts and 1680 CPUs.

How has it helped my organization?

All of our marketing data is in one place. Every analysis uses straightforward PostgreSQL. Speed is good now that we’ve upgraded hosts.

What is most valuable?

nPath has made journey/path analysis much easier.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more/better documentation. They need to enhance analytic/data science algorithms. They will be connecting into open-source so this may be moot.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution at six out of 10. It has been fantastic for running complete data sets (no sampling required). However, we have struggled with uptime. Some of the features need to be updated.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
