Leading International Retailer Woolworths Builds Out Growing Business with Teradata Analytics

Australia-based grocery store chain has successfully integrated and consolidated on new Teradata data warehouse platform
Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the analytic data solutions company, announced today that Woolworths Limited, based in Australia and one of the world’s top twenty retailers, has completed implementation of its Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance platform in collaboration with Teradata Professional Services. The new data warehouse environment, fusing the most powerful new database software and hardware, serves as the point of integration for continuously rising volumes of detailed customer data.

”Woolworths’ decision to go with Teradata is part of an on-going program of business and technology investment, renewal and expansion,” said Priscilla Patroni, Business Technology Services, Woolworths. “We see growth ahead of us and this system will enable this by providing the analytic insight we want - to see our customers more clearly and serve them more personally.”
The new system provides a dramatically faster, more efficient analytics platform capable of managing extremely complex queries in a mixed-workload environment designed to support hundreds of business users who depend on quick answers to business questions and challenges.
The Woolworths data warehouse will receive fresh data from transactions across the enterprise, including daily point-of-sale information.
“Woolworths is a consumer-centric business in which the data they manage is a valuable contributor to the quality of customer experience, and they are careful about their investments in information technology,” said Andrew Blamey, director of sales and marketing, Teradata, South Pacific Area. “Woolworths chose Teradata because only our database analytic solutions were able to fully meet their demanding business and technology requirements.”
The Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance is a cost-effective, fully integrated, scalable platform with Teradata nodes, industry-standard, enterprise-class storage, and the Teradata Database and utilities.
