Gartner has given Teradata the highest product scores in all four data management use case categories (Traditional, Operational, Logical and Context-Independent) in its report, “Critical Capabilities for Data Management Solutions for Analytics” issued March 16, 2017 by analysts Rick Greenwald, Donald Feinberg, and Adam M. Ronthal. Teradata, analytics solutions company, is one of 20 database vendors evaluated in the new report, which is a companion note to the Magic Quadrant for Data Management Solutions for Analytics, published February 20, 2017, where Teradata was a leader and positioned the furthest for Completeness of Vision.
In the first of its Key Findings, Gartner characterized the current landscape: “Traditional data management solutions for analytics (DMSA) vendors have integrated nonrelational access and functionality into their products and regained dominant positions in the market.”
“Teradata’s dominance in the new Critical Capabilities evaluation underscores its status as the definitive database solution for analytics – in any and every possible use case,” said Oliver Ratzesberger, Executive Vice President and Chief Product Officer. “This is a huge accomplishment, and reflects our logical data warehouse approach, represented by our Teradata Unified Data Architecture including Teradata Aster Analytics and Hadoop. This gives our customers more emphatic validation than ever before; that Teradata not only designs – but defines – the most powerful data management solutions for transformational business outcomes across industries. The strong sense of loyalty noted in the report indicates that our customers instinctively recognize Teradata’s technological and business leadership.”
The new norm in data management today increasingly combines cloud and on-premises in hybrid configurations. Teradata IntelliCloud, recently introduced, is the next generation secure managed cloud offering that provides data and analytic software as a service. It is available with new deployment choices including Teradata IntelliFlex, the company’s flagship enterprise data warehouse platform.
