Teradata Big Analytics Technology Receives Global Recognition
SAN DIEGO, Sept. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Teradata (NYSE: TDC (TDCAF.PK)), the leading analytic data solutions company, today announced that its Aster SQL-HTM and the Teradata Aster MapReduce Portfolio were recognized among the world's best new software by the International Business Awards program, which presented Teradata a bronze STEVIE award in the category of best new product or service of the year.
"We are honored to receive this award," said Priyank Patel, director of Product Management, Teradata Aster. "Teradata is passionate about offering our customers the ability to unlock the intelligence hidden within vast amounts of multi-structured data, and use it to out-maneuver their competition and increase value to the bottom line."
Teradata Aster SQL-H is the long-sought bridge that allows business analysts to easily access, and analyze data stored in Hadoop. With Aster SQL-H, users no longer have to learn how to use a non-standard, difficult tool or earn additional data science degrees. Utilizing the Aster MapReduce Portfolio of analytic functions and applications, businesses can use common analytical tools for deep data discovery, such as pattern matching or path analysis.
This Teradata Aster software portfolio enables organizations to harness data from non-traditional sources such as social media and web logs and to analyze it for new business insight in order to better understand consumer behavior and preferences. Most companies lack the technical or personnel resources to analyze massive volumes and new types of data. Because sifting through this data is so complex, most organizations today are forfeiting the opportunity to use the information for insight that can dramatically increase business value.
The Stevie Awards, nicknamed the Stevies from the Greek word "crowned," were created to honor and generate public recognition for the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working people worldwide. The award nominees were judged by more than 200 executives around the world.
