Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Teradata.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The scalability could be better. The on-premises solution is always more complicated to scale. The flexibility could be improved. The product is good if you know what you're planning to do. If you're designing as well, upfront, then it's fine. However, if you've made a mistake in the design work or your system, then it could be quite complex and expensive, and it may not preform well.
I would like to see more integration with many different types of data.
It could use some more advanced analytics relating to structured and semi-structured data. In other words, there should be a process that makes advanced analytics easier. The integration capabilities could be improved. They should improve their marketing to make it easier to sell to customers.
I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved. They should, I think, try to do more of this open-source initiative to encourage more people to use it. Otherwise, it's my opinion that they might lose our business in the long run.
What really needs to improve, is their general cloud services. That is their biggest downfall at the moment.
The user interface needs to be improved. The price needs to be more competitive as Hadoop, Redshift, Snowflake, etc are constantly making way into EDW space.
I would like to see an improved Knowledge Base on the web.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
One of the most popular comparisons on IT Central Station is IBM DB2 vs Oracle Database.
