The user interface needs to be improved.I would like to see an improved Knowledge Base on the web.It needs a teaching web site with more training on third-party tools used for BI.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.There is a need to improve performance in high transaction processes, as well as the reporting system.Query language and its functionality are rather limited, compared to Oracle or even SQL Server. However, it is possible to perform any kind of logic in it (though some workarounds may be required).Data ingestion is done via external utilities and not by the query language itself. It would be more convenient to have that functionality within its SQL dialect.Needs compatibility with more Big Data platforms.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The price needs to be more competitive as Hadoop, Redshift, Snowflake, etc are constantly making way into EDW space.We are looking for a more flexible cost model for the next version that we use, whether it be cloud or on-premise.Price is quite high, so if it is really possible to use other solutions (e.g. you do not have strict requirements for performance and huge data volumes), it might be better to look at alternatives from the RDBMS world.Teradata is expensive but gives value for money, especially if you don't want to move your data to the cloud.It is still a very expensive solution. While I very much like the pure technological supremacy of the software itself, I believe Teradata as a company needs to become more affordable. They are already losing the market to more flexible or cheaper competitors.
