Teradata Data Integration Roadmap for Manufacturing

The Missing Link: selecting business intelligence initiatives based on enterprise needs

Teradata has developed industry-specific Data Integration Roadmaps as reference models to support alignment of analytics to business strategy. These models provide a best-practice approach that leverages one of the most stable aspects of the business environment — the data — as represented by the integrated data model.

Rising fuel costs, transportation costs, ever-changing customer demands and fierce competition from overseas markets in an increasingly global economy make this a great time to leverage every bit of power in your integrated data warehouse.

The Teradata Manufacturing DIR is a visual reference model that shows you how you can support your strategic business values and decisions based on a foundation of integrated data. Combined with the Teradata Manufacturing Data Model, it provides value by ensuring a business-driven perspective to data warehouse design and usage. This DIR forges linkage from the highest strategic levels of your company down to the basic business information as captured in day-to-day operational data.
