Tap into Deep Teradata Expertise
Data warehousing presents a unique set of business and technical challenges. Every CIO wants to know the best way to leverage data warehousing to gain faster time to market, increase innovation, and make smarter, faster decisions to drive business growth.
At Teradata Corporation, we understand these pressures – including the need to rely on professionals dedicated to your project and who thoroughly understand your business challenges.
That’s where Teradata’s Global Consulting Centers (GCCs) come in. The Teradata® GCCs provide a critical mass of experienced Teradata consultants to improve execution speed and help ensure on-time and on-budget EDW implementations. With Teradata GCCs, you can maximize your investment in skilled resources while also focusing on quality in a secure environment. Our GCC teams are an extension of your local Teradata Professional Services team. As such, the GCC staff is fully equipped with all Teradata tools, technologies, and a patented data warehouse methodology, as well as global experience, across all key industries to deliver value to you.
Teradata GCCs have real-world experience with data warehousing projects in more than 20 countries, supported in state-of-the-art facilities that maintain the highest levels of security. Teradata GCCs serve companies as diverse as global multi-nationals to national companies in all major industries, from financial services and telecommunications to retail, manufacturing, government, and transportation logistics. Since GCC personnel are Teradata employees, they have access to Teradata knowledge management systems and training, as well as other Teradata experts.
The Teradata GCC Difference
Regardless of your project needs, our GCC team can provide dedicated support on site and off site. That’s because the GCC operating model lets us integrate the benefits of on-site and remote services into a single service engagement for you.
This optimized on-site/off-site delivery model, where local teams and the GCC work together, offers you the best possible blend of strategic and tactical support. And all that adds up to yet another built-in benefit – lower costs to you for data warehousing services.
Complete, Convenient Project Support
Teradata GCCs ensure that you have all the technical resources you need to achieve your business goals, quickly and cost effectively.
At Teradata, we know that data warehousing demands a unique set of skills. Especially the ability to provide resources to help you execute and coordinate every aspect of your solution – from planning and development to rollout and continuing Teradata support. The Teradata GCCs let us bring those skills to your data warehouse project cost effectively and with the added benefit of knowing that the Teradata GCC is a trusted extension of your local Teradata Professional Services team.
Through the GCCs, you can tap into the accumulated knowledge and expertise of Teradata consultants globally. Each Teradata GCC has access to the most experienced data warehouse consultants in the world – a staff with thousands of collective years of data warehouse implementation expertise.
Our GCCs are staffed with professionals trained in the patented Teradata Solutions Methodology. GCC consultants have superior knowledge in third-party Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) tools; Business Intelligence software; and other critical skill sets. And each has a time-tested approach for efficiently transitioning tasks from your site to the center and back again. The result? Unequalled quality and improved speed of execution.
Protect Your Investment
Worried about taking critical data warehousing functions offsite? Don’t be. Teradata GCCs offer stringent privacy and security support to keep your data secure. For example, we practice data anonymization to protect your sensitive data, and we build that activity into your implementation plan.
Whenever we need to access your Teradata environment from our off-site facility, we use secure, business to business virtual private network (VPN)-encrypted connections to further secure your database.
We’ve also built our GCC facilities on a solid foundation of quality. Teradata consulting centers feature strong, validated project management practices, as well as rigorous configuration management techniques. All have well-defined solutions methodologies in place and provide enterprise-wide training programs.
At every location, we work hard to establish the kind of quality functions that allow us to continually improve defined processes based on quantitative measurements of rolled out processes, procedures, tools, and technologies.
