Partnering for Complete, End-to-End Solutions

Today’s complex enterprise-wide data solutions require sophisticated tools and specialized expertise – often from multiple sources. Teradata understands the importance of strong business partnerships in delivering end-to-end enterprise solutions. Developing these key partnerships is a cornerstone of our long-term strategy.

Driven by a tradition of knowledge growth, thought leadership, and unmatched commitment to excellence, Teradata partners with a wide variety of like-minded companies to develop and provide robust offerings that strengthen our enterprise data warehouse and business intelligence solutions.

Teradata is committed to partnering with the world’s leading software and technology vendors, consultants, and systems integrators with global, cross-industry expertise in designing and implementing Teradata systems and analytic solutions that deliver business value to you.

Deep Skills and Experience

Teradata Professional Services consultants have deep technical expertise in data warehousing, business intelligence tools, applications, and data management technologies. In fact, no other solution provider has more experience with data warehousing implementations than Teradata. By precisely translating your business goals into technical requirements, we create a customized solution that works.

Our delivery model may also include resources from our Global Consulting Centers. Staffed by Teradata consultants, these centers provide cost-effective integration of on-site and remote services and offer round-the-clock development that draws from all of Teradata’s robust internal resources to meet or even beat your schedule, all with a total cost of ownership that meets your expectations.

Phased Approach to ROI

In today’s challenging economic climate, organizations are faced with shrinking budgets and increasing expectations, forcing you to do more with less. As a result, large multi-year projects have fallen out of favor. Instead, you’re expected to show measurable value in incremental phases to maintain funding for upgrades, expansions, and new technology investments.

Teradata understands your challenge. That’s why our Professional Services teams manage your project in 90-120-day iterative phases, allowing you to showcase ROI every step of the way. In addition, rolling out a data warehouse using this iterative approach allows you to continually fine-tune the project to meet changing business priorities. And early deployment lets you begin recouping costs much sooner.

A Complete Package 

From our world-class patented methodology, to our services supporting strategy, Teradata Professional Services is here to help with the financial justification, development, planning, design, implementation, management, and enhancement of your enterprise analytics environment.

This know-how, coupled with real-life practical experience in a variety of industries, gives Teradata Professional Services the ability to create solutions that drive business value.


"If you want to do a project just like dozens or hundreds of similar projects done by other enterprises, why not just go with Teradata and Teradata’s professional services arm? After all – individually and collectively, they’ve been doing it forever, or so close to forever as to make little difference."

 – Curt Monash, President of Monash Research, "The Teradata Accelerate Program," DBMS2: A Monash Research Publication, Nov. 22, 2008.
