Teradata Review
For large EDWH solutions, Teradata is the best.

Valuable Features

I found all parts --loading, transformation, processing & querying work in parallel, and end-to-end-- to be valuable.

Improvements to My Organization

Vodafone Spain tried to migrate a very populated data mart platform from Sybase IQ to Oracle. Unfortunately, they failed at this job. But more than 20 Sybase IQ database engines (with their respective licence, support costs, etc.) were successfully integrated into one single Teradata ecosystem.

Room for Improvement

The cloud is the new challenge and the new opportunity.

Use of Solution

I have designed Teradata EDWH solutions for more than 16 years.

Stability Issues

I did not encounter any issues at all.

Scalability Issues

I did not encounter any issues at all.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I would rate the level of technical support 10/10.

Previous Solutions

I have previous experience with Oracle/Informix/Sybase. For large EDWH solutions, Teradata is the best. Oracle solutions are multipurpose oriented and Td is EDWH oriented from the beginning.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

The initial cost may seem high, but the TCO is low.

Other Solutions Considered

I mainly evaluated Oracle.

Other Advice

I recommend starting with a clean and normalized business model that is capable of addressing business questions. Teratada (and its consultants) will do the rest.

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