We are also building a joint Co-Innovation Lab in SAP’s offices in Palo Alto, California, where customers can come and work with us on integration opportunities between SAP & Teradata.  We’ll promote this in the interest of giving our customers everything they need to raise their collective intelligence and accelerate their business growth. Not every one of us is an Einstein, but with the power of SAP and Teradata at our fingertips, we will operate with increased intelligence at unprecedented speed. That’s how international races – in business and on the track – are always won.
