Senior Manager - Data Quality and Governance with 1,001-5,000 employees

What is most valuable?

The performance is most important to me, and it helps our ability to make business decisions quickly.

Consultant
Senior Consultant at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
Nov 27 2019

What is most valuable?

What needs improvement?

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.
