New solution offers analytic alternative, while reducing IT complexity and cost
Available today, Teradata Analytics for SAP® Solutions offers best-in-class analytics capabilities and unmatched business insight. Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions extracts data from SAP® ERP systems, combines it with operational and big data in a Teradata Database, and performs high value business analytics on the data. The resulting insights can be used to drive smart business decisions throughout the enterprise. Designed by Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the leading analytic data platforms, applications and services company, Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions includes software and services that offer high performance capability, at a low cost.

“It makes perfect sense to move data from SAP solutions to Teradata and integrate it with big data and business data. By doing so, customers will enjoy a vastly more performant, simplified, and useful system. They will also be served by a very large professional services organization from Teradata that is focused on – big data analytics, data warehousing, and business intelligence,” said Neil Raden, chief executive officer and principal analyst, Hired Brains Research.
Teradata allows application users to easily extract and combine data from multiple SAP and non-SAP systems within the Teradata Database. When data is integrated within the Teradata Database, it can then be exposed to over 1,000 in-database analytic functions, available from Teradata and its partners. The resulting analytics equips SAP application users to meet the unrelenting demand for intelligence.
“The ability to access data from SAP solutions and bring it into the Teradata Database will enable our customers to leverage high-value, predictive analytics and see their entire organization in a new way and guide it forward. They will be able to move from operational reporting to creating a vision for the future,” said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. “Teradata Analytics for SAP Solutions can be rapidly deployed and easily maintained; it also reduces IT complexity and cost.”
