“It makes perfect sense to move SAP system data to Teradata and integrate it with big data and business data,” said Neil Raden, chief executive officer and principal analyst, Hired Brains Research. “By doing so, SAP customers will enjoy a vastly more high-performing, simplified and useful system. They will also be served by a large professional services organisation from Teradata focused on big data analytics, data warehousing and business intelligence.”
Teradata allows SAP application users to easily combine data from multiple SAP systems and non-SAP systems, within the Teradata Database. The integrated data can then be exposed to over 1,000 in-database analytic functions, available from Teradata and its partners. The resulting analytics equips SAP application users to meet the unrelenting demand for intelligence.
“The integration of SAP system’s data into the Teradata Database will enable our customers to leverage high-value, predictive analytics and see their entire organisation in a new way and guide it forward,” said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. “As a result, they will be able to move from operational reporting to creating a vision for the future.
