What is our primary use case?

Building a single truth database (Enterprise Data Warehouse) where all the enterprise data is integrated at one place.

How has it helped my organization?

  • Building a data warehouse with Teradata has definitely helped a lot of our downstream applications to more easily access information.
  • It has reduced a lot of reworking on maintaining indexes, partitions, etc. Due to its architecture, the focus has been shifted from not maintaining the database to how we can utilize the data/features.

What is most valuable?

Parallel processing features have helped to easily dump any size of data and retrieve data with great performance.

Features like TPump were helpful for real-time data loads compatible with almost all other APIs/tools in our enterprise.

Inbuilt architecture reduces admins' efforts.

What needs improvement?

  • Cost
  • Scalability

It would help to make scaling easier with a reduced cost.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
