We take a closer look at the global analytics platform, Teradata, and what its technology offers its consumers, below. 

Business Overview: 

Teradata delivers real-time, intelligent answers, leveraging 100% of the relevant data, regardless of scale or volume of query. And we do it on-premises in the cloud, and anywhere in between. It’s called Pervasive Data Intelligence. And only Teradata has the industry-leading products, expertise, and services to deliver it today. The company has over 35 years of experience behind it and serves in over 75 countries. Only Teradata leverages 100% of your relevant data with the speed, scale and flexibility to deliver answers to the issues that matter most to the success of your business. 

Product portfolio 

  • Vantage: “Business intelligence powered by the cloud.” 

As data volumes grow faster than ever, businesses struggle to get answers. Teradata Vantage solves this problem. Vantage uses 100 percent of available data to uncover real-time business intelligence at scale, powering the new era of Pervasive Data Intelligence. 

See all data from across the entire organization in one place, whenever it's needed, with preferred languages and tools. Vantage supports R, Python, Teradata Studio, Jupyter, RStudio, and any SQL-based tool. Enable various languages and tools to connect seamlessly to Vantage, with support for each tool through plug-ins, extensions, and connectors. It offers flexible deployment across public clouds, as well as on-premises, on optimised or commodity infrastructure, or as-a-service. No more locked-in licenses. No more penalties or fees for changing your mind.

  • Vantage analyst: With Vantage Analyst, users do not need to know how to code complex machine learning algorithms. 

They simply select parameters through UI and Vantage Analyst handles the rest. Vantage Analyst provides an easy-to-use interface for creating, training, and scoring predictive models with widely used predictive modeling algorithms, such as Generalized Linear Model (GLM) and Support Vector Machine (SVM). 

Vantage Analyst lets users visually detect and drill down into hidden data patterns through interactive visualizations that facilitate an agile, iterative data science process.

  • Vantage customer experience: Optimizing the customer experience is challenging. Most organizations have little visibility into the raw data of the customer journey across multiple customer touchpoints and departments, can’t sense and react to a multitude of customer pain points and opportunities, and struggle to quickly, meaningfully personalize customer interactions. 

Vantage Customer Experience eliminates these challenges by giving Marketers and Customer Experience Professionals the autonomy needed to keep pace with dynamic customer interactions.

Vantage CX delivers the previously elusive 360-degree view of the customer by allowing data integration experts in IT and citizen data integrators in the business to collaborate rather than compete.Vantage CX helps enterprises sense and react to a multitude of customer pain points and opportunities with easy-to-use advanced analytics.
