Its products are meant to consolidate data from different sources and make the data available for analysis. Formerly a division of NCR Corporation, Teradata was incorporated in 1979 and separated from NCR in October 2007. Michael Koehler became president and CEO of Teradata after its 2007 spin off from NCR. [3] Teradata's Applications business is led by Darryl McDonald [4] , and the corporate headquarters is located in Miamisburg, Ohio. Corporate Overview Teradata is an enterprise software company that develops and sells a relational database management system (RDBMS) with the same name. Teradata is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) NYSE under the stock symbol TDC. The Teradata product is referred to as a "data warehouse system" and stores and manages data. The data warehouses use a "shared nothing" architecture which means that each server node has its own memory and processing power. [5] Adding more servers and nodes increases the amount of data that can be stored. The database software sits on top of the servers and spreads the workload among them. Teradata sells applications and software to process different types of data. In 2010, Teradata added text analytics to track unstructured data, such as word processor documents, and

  4. 4. Teradata 4 Teradata is the most popular data warehouse DBMS in the DB-Engines database ranking. In 2010, Teradata was listed in Fortune’s annual list of Most Admired Companies. Active enterprise data warehouse Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse is the platform that runs the Teradata Database, with added data management tools and data mining software. The data warehouse differentiates between “hot and cold” data – meaning that the warehouse puts data that is not often used in a slower storage section. As of October 2010, Teradata uses Xeon 5600 processors for the server nodes. Teradata Database 13.10 was announced in 2010 as the company’s database software for storing and processing data.

The Teradata Partners Conference has been an annual event since 1985. The conference involves lectures and speeches on technical and business topics and announcements about new products. Teradata and Big Data Teradata began to associate itself with the term, “Big Data” in 2010. CTO, Stephen Brobst, attributes the rise of big data to “new media sources, such as social media.” The increase in semi-structured and unstructured data gathered from online interactions prompted Teradata to form the “Petabyte club” in 2011 for its heaviest big data users. The rise of big data resulted in many traditional data warehousing companies updating their products and technology. For Teradata, big data prompted the acquisition of Aster Data Systems in 2011 for the company’s MapReduce capabilities and ability to store and analyze semi-structured data. Public interest in big data resulted in a 13% increase in Teradata’s global sales. Competition Teradata's main competitors are similar products from vendors such as Oracle, IBM, Microsoft and Sybase IQ. Also, competitors include data warehouse appliance vendors such as Netezza [19] (acquired in November 2010 by IBM), DATAllegro (acquired in August 2008 by Microsoft), ParAccel, Greenplum (acquired in July 2010 by EMC), and Vertica Systems (acquired in February 2011 by HP), and from packaged data warehouse applications such as SAP BW and Kalido.
