Teradata expands managed services
Additional services include application development projects
Data warehousing company Teradata has announced the expansion of its Teradata Managed Services capabilities to include application lifecycle development and sustainment.
The company is growing its managed services to include new application development projects, such as report creation, ad-hoc query development or analytical modelling, as well as integration enhancements for new data sources to the data warehouse, based on a managed services agreement.
According to Teradata, the availability of advanced business intelligence skills has become increasingly important for businesses that depend on analytics from the data warehouse, to improve customer acquisition and retention, reduce operational costs and shorten product time-to-market.
"The business value provided by Teradata Managed Services has driven particularly strong growth as more customers look to Teradata's deep experience to manage their business intelligence and data integration environments," said Dave Klumb, vice president, Teradata Corporation. "Behind the scenes of every one of our managed services engagements is a host of experienced, certified professionals, processes and specialised tools that provide a stable and optimised data warehouse environment to customers."
According to Teradata, one of the world's largest airlines is utilising Teradata Managed Services to prioritise new projects and free its existing IT teams to enable them to tackle new projects that affect revenue.
Teradata Managed Services experts manage database administration, system administration, data integration, and operational activities. The service also provides consultants to help customers successfully use data integration and explain how these tools, technologies and processes work best with the Teradata data warehouse.
In addition, Teradata's analytic services are designed to enable customers to support and manage highly tuned business intelligence applications that push valuable information into the company's operations and to front-line decision-makers in near real-time.
Teradata has also opened global consulting centres staffed with specialists dedicated to the managed services tasks.
"Our Teradata Managed Services business is continually investing in people, processes and tools that make the difference between simply providing a service and becoming a trusted, valued data warehousing partner. Our laser-focus on excellent service delivery will ultimately help our customers to advance their enterprise intelligence initiatives," said Klumb.
