Good data warehousing, scalable, and offers good functionality

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for data warehousing.

Pros and Cons

  • "The functionality of the solution is excellent."
  • "I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

This is a very good solution. After looking at the recent price drops, they need to offer very good discounts for people that bought it. The value proposition is actually quite good compared to many years ago. For most of the enterprises out there, they're focusing mainly on structure data. This solution ticks that box. As long as they can control the price incrementally in the future, I think they're a very good strong platform. I'd rate this product in terms of its functionality, stability, and scalability, as almost perfect. It's a nine out of ten. I don't think there's anything to complain…

A great solution for business analytics, cloud products, and consulting

What is our primary use case?

We resell Teradata, but not in the cloud. Currently, our experience with Teradata in the cloud is theoretical as we haven't started selling it to our customers yet; however, a few of our customers are interested in migrating to a cloud-based solution. Our clients use Teradata to consolidate corporate data to provide reports. These reports are required every day — it's more like described analytics.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a pre-configured appliance that requires very little in terms of setting-up."
  • "It could use some more advanced analytics relating to structured and semi-structured data."

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend Teradata to other interested companies. It's really easy to use thanks to the simple configuration. Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give Teradata a rating of ten.

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.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is a stable program."
  • "An additional feature I would you like to see included in the next release, is that it needs to be more cloud-friendly."

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.

Scalable solution that takes advantage of massive parallel processing

What is most valuable?

There are two…
