Who needs intelligence? It’d be hard to find a company that says it doesn’t. But when it comes to the daily grind of IT, most firms are focused on processing lots of data fast.

Because staying a step ahead of growing data volumes is no small feat. But can you gain insights and intelligence about that data at the same time? You can.

At Teradata, our engineers have worked hard to move our new platform into a realm that brings affordable intelligence in the data warehouse to a broader segment of the marketplace. Those customers who previously thought Teradata was only for large customers should check out Teradata 13.

We boosted overall performance by 30 percent. If we consider the combination of software and hardware platform performance, Teradata performance is seven times faster over that same time period.

The way I look at the Gartner Magic Quadrant, Teradata has been the leader for 8 years running by outperforming all of the competition in the marketplace, including Oracle and Netezza. With Teradata 13, we are extending our lead by adding another 30 percent of overall performance, and new important capabilities. Teradata has more than doubled its software performance based on

With Teradata 13, we are extending our lead by adding another 30 percent of overall performance, and new important capabilities. Teradata has more than doubled its software performance based on improvements in the last three years. If we consider the combination of software and hardware platform performance, Teradata 13 performance is seven times faster over that same time period.

Teradata 13 is the best price-performer in the marketplace and is the foundation that powers the industry’s only purpose-built data warehouse platform family, which includes the Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse platform, the Data Warehouse Appliance, Extreme Data Appliance, Data Mart Appliance and the Data Mart Edition.

Teradata 13 provides customers with an affordable foundation for a wide range of business analytics spanning departmental and enterprise intelligence for all sizes of companies. And we’ve raised the bar by integrating geospatial processing, and Teradata 13 is now optimized for online analytical processing. Customers can now load location data into the data warehouse and that means a company can quickly perform analysis about the location of customers to correlate buying trends in different areas.

All of this raw performance translates to agility and speed. But it’s the underlying tools that really bring intelligence to the customer. Because, at the end of the day, if you can’t discover insights in your customer data, the brute horsepower just doesn’t matter.
