Local company named a ‘technology leader’

Miami Twp.-based Teradata said it has been named “the technology leader” in a new industry report.

A data analytics solutions company, Teradata said the accolade came in “the latest Big Data Warehouse Landscape report, issued annually by The Information Difference, an international data management analyst firm.”

In a release, Teradata said it was ranked No. 1 in technology, first in “customer satisfaction,” and one of the top four companies in market presence, based on an evaluation of the top 25 global data warehouse vendors.

The report appears to compare Teradata to industry peers, like Oracle, SAS, Microsoft and IBM.

"A significant part of the 'technology' dimension scoring is assigned to customer satisfaction, as determined by a survey of vendor customers," the report says. "In this research cycle the vendor with the happiest customers was Teradata. Our congratulations to them."
