The beginning of a new year is a great time to take stock of where you are and where you want to go – things you want to do, learn, change, and eliminate. You set goals, make resolutions, and dedicate yourself to becoming a better version of yourself.

These aspirations typically also include the desire to simplify: to dial down the noise and complexity of modern life and get a better handle on all the mayhem. You want less chaos, more control, and better outcomes, not only personally but in your professional life as well – especially if your work revolves around data and analytics at scale.

Good news: Teradata Vantage in the cloud has your back when it comes to analytic simplicity, control, effectiveness, and results. We’re here for you.

Really?

Yes, I’m serious. Just think about it:
  • You’ve got all types of data in all kinds of formats coming from all sorts of sources with varying levels of value.
  • You’ve got myriad internal users with all manner of ever-changing analytic tools and languages, not to mention applications and ecosystem components.
  • You’ve got pressure to reduce costs, be more responsive, stay a step ahead of your stakeholders, and have a solid foundation for handling future requirements.
  • You want flexibility: zero vendor lock-in, minimal risk yet superior performance, resource elasticity with uptime guarantees, and the ability to leverage your existing data, processes, and training.
  • And, of course, you prefer minimal up-front commitment but also want to be treated like a king by folks you trust and who really know your business and are experts at what they do.
That pretty much sums it up, right? You want it all, and you need it now.

No worries, we’ve got you, fam: Vantage in the cloud delivers all of this – today.

Really?

Yes, it’s true. I’ll explain.

Let’s start by reminding ourselves what Vantage is, since not everyone got the memo about how the former Teradata Database was recently renamed and relaunched with powerful new embedded capabilities such as machine learning and graph analytics which complement the venerable SQL Engine that has been refined over decades.

In short, Teradata Vantage is the platform for Pervasive Data Intelligence. It is the only software of its kind, capable of managing all your data, all the time, so you can analyze anything, deploy anywhere, and deliver analytics that matter. Vantage offers full integration with your favorite tools and languages, leading analytic engines, and new sources of data to deliver the answers you need to create better business outcomes.
If that sounds like a lot, it is – but that’s OK, because we’re talking about Teradata here. We’re the folks who basically created the enterprise analytics category a few decades ago and are now leading the way toward what’s next in terms of helping firms get the most value from their data. So, relax: Vantage is real, it’s proven, it’s available today, and customers love it. It’s a winner.

Even better, Vantage is available in the cloud virtually wherever and however you want to consume.
