August 5, 2015 | DAYTON, Ohio

Report states “Teradata Intelligent Memory delivers a credible power pack for analytics”

Teradata Corp. (NYSE: TDC), the big data analytics and marketing applications company, has announced that Forrester Research, Inc., an independent analyst firm, named Teradata a leader in The Forrester Wave™: In-Memory Database Platforms, Q3 2015 evaluation. Teradata uses a hybrid approach to in-memory that intelligently puts the right data in memory to deliver high-speed in-memory performance at a fraction of the cost of putting all data in memory.

In the In-Memory Database Platforms Wave, Forrester recognized, “Teradata’s strength lies in delivering high performance and scale for analytical workloads, appliance integration, and strong high availability and disaster recovery, as well as broad integration with tools and programming languages. Teradata’s road map includes enhancements to in-memory processing and optimizations to Intelligent Memory.”
The Forrester evaluation was published August 3 and written by principal analyst Noel Yuhanna, with Leslie Owens, Elizabeth Cullen, and Diane Lynch. The findings were based on scoring for the Teradata Database 15.0 in current offering, strategy and market presence. Forrester’s scores included categories such as Analytics Support, Data Movement, Performance and Scale, and Scale-out Architecture, where Teradata scored 5.0 – the highest score possible -- for each of these dimensions. Teradata also scored 5.0 for partners in the Market Presence category.
Forrester also stated in the report “Teradata Intelligent Memory delivers a credible power pack for analytics.”
“Business demands more data and analytics and at the same time, expects better system performance as a core requirement,” said Teradata Co-President Hermann Wimmer. “We believe the Forrester evaluation recognizes Teradata Intelligent Memory delivers on both of those expectations.”
Teradata was among 11 select companies that Forrester invited to take part in the evaluation against 19 criteria for current offering, strategy and market presence.
“We believe Forrester’s recognition of Teradata as a leader in in-memory is a testament of our innovations. With Teradata Database 15.10 we are again raising the bar with advanced in-memory techniques such as pipelining, vectorization, bulk qualification, and columnar storage, delivering in-memory performance through an integrated automated solution” said Oliver Ratzesberger, president of Teradata Labs.
On August 11 Teradata will host a live one-hour free webinar with guest Forrester analyst Noel Yuhanna on “In-Memory Processing for High-Performance Analytics.”
