What a day! Over 3,000 people focused on the best of data warehousing all in one place, at the same time. Opening day of PARTNERS is always jam-packed, but yesterday was even more so. Customers began presenting their latest innovations using Teradata and we made several significant announcements.

Two things hit me as especially significant:

One was the start of my day, the inaugural ComputerWorld Enterprise Intelligence Awards, sponsored by Teradata. This morning, the top winners in each category were: Discover Financial Services for Integrated View of the Business, eBay for Excellence in BI and Analytics, Hallmark Cards for Customer Intelligence and Management, and Medco Health Solutions for Industry Innovation.

And with our significant announcements made from PARTNERS yesterday, including the industry-leading Teradata 13 database and the powerful new Teradata Extreme Data Appliance, I had a realization that kept growing in importance the more I thought about it during this busy day. It was the WOW factor for me this day: Teradata has announced more innovations in the one year since becoming independent than ever before.

WOW.
