    Product(s): Teradata DBMS Software

    Easy Adoption, with more data and integration approach.

    Overall Comment

    Works ok in many use cases, but you need to maintain a close relationship with the vendor or third party to ensure usability, performance and security.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Think on integration, think on how much data you want to manage in the future and think how are you going to exploit.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Performance and the integration tool.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    The close approach to increase usability.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Involve in all stages of implementation process, helping even in the "evangelization" instances.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    I think the hard part to bring new technologies to our company, is to convince all the different IT areas that the "new thing" do better sometimes. So the different part will be to incorporate use cases and demo to all IT areas during early stages of the implementation.

    Picking the safe option has left us with a solution that is too slow to change.

    Overall Comment

    The vendor is very set in its ways and can be blinkered when considering alternative ways to do things.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Don't be fooled into selecting the 'safe' option, project for future to where you want to be in a few years time. Make sure your vendor buys into your vision for the future.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Very stable, reliable and has good performance.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Too expensive.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Teradata is slow to respond and are not inclined to embrace innovation.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    Buy a different product set. The world has moved on and the Teradata is a cul-de sac.

    Integration has been slow, complex and expensive.
