Teradata Review

It is stable but it should be more cloud-friendly and scalability is poor

What is our primary use case?

We are only consultants, so we don't use the program ourselves. 

What is most valuable?

Our customers are very impressed by Teradata's speed, because it's massively parallel processed. So you can get a great volume of data through quickly.

What needs improvement?

What really needs to improve, is their general cloud services. That is their biggest downfall at the moment. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Teradata is a really stable program.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability of Teradata is extremely poor, unfortunately.

How are customer service and technical support?

Because we are only consultants, we never use the technical support. Only our clients do.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, I will rate Teradata a seven. An additional feature I would like to see included in the next release is that it needs to be more cloud-friendly. That's the one thing they're going to lose customers over, so that needs to improve. I know they're working on it, but they need to do it quicker. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
