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

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.

Improvements to My Organization

It didn't improve the way our organization functions.

Valuable Features


Room for Improvement

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

Use of Solution

Less than one year.

Stability Issues

No issues with stability.

Scalability Issues

No issues with scalability.

Customer Service and Technical Support

I would rate tech support at eight out of 10.

Previous Solutions

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

Initial Setup

Very complex.

Other Advice

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.

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