Independent analyst firm Forrester Research, Inc. has declared Teradata has the top-rated Enterprise Data Warehouse strategy and stated, “Teradata provides the most scalable, flexible, cloud-capable EDW solution in today’s market.” The recognition was given in the February 10, 2011 “The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Data Warehousing Platforms, Q1, 2011,” Teradata reported today.
Teradata earned the highest possible score for more than half of the criteria, including scalability, performance and optimization, mixed workload management, deployment and execution flexibility, software and hardware platform integration, product direction and professional services.
The report specifically addresses Teradata’s many differentiators, “including having the widest set of EDW packaging, licensing, pricing and professional service options on the market, as well as certified integration with a broad range of partner application and middleware components.” The report goes on to state, “Teradata increasingly positions its EDW offerings as the platform for partners to build analytic solution packages for specific industries and business functions. And through its significant investment to build, deepen, and diversify its already formidable EDW-focused consulting organization, Teradata stands poised for further growth and diversification to address new enterprise analytic requirements,” the report noted.
Forrester proclaimed that Teradata’s industry leadership extends far beyond the traditional EDW market, “with a growing focus on midmarket EDW appliances and in-database analytics.” The report also identified that Teradata “provides appliance-based EDW solutions for various customer size and functionality requirements.”
Forrester concluded its evaluation with, “Teradata’s mature product portfolio, coupled with intensifying innovation and a renewed focus on price-performance, gives it a competitive advantage. Expect Teradata to leverage these strengths, plus its expert consulting organization, to grow its share of the EDW market.”
