Teradata Review

High transaction processes, as well as the reporting system, need improvement

What is our primary use case?

We tried to use case Teradata for a data warehouse system, but we had some problems in relation to the Teradata system, CDC tools, and source databases. We were unable to transfer data from HPE Integrity mainframe to Teradata.

How has it helped my organization?

It didn't improve the way our organization functions.

What is most valuable?


What needs improvement?

There is a need to improve performance in high transaction processes, as well as the reporting system.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would rate tech support at eight out of 10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, we already had SAP IQ and were using it. We didn’t switch. We tried but it failed.

How was the initial setup?

Very complex.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Teradata two out of 10. At first, support was very good, but during and after they ended their operation in Turkey it was very bad. We had some agreements and they gave us some promises but...

We bought it three years ago but we couldn't use it in production. We have SAP IQ data warehouse now and I don't have a major problem. I would recommend SAP IQ for data warehouse.

If you are going to buy Teradata, you have to make a very solid contract with them.
