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.
Think on integration, think on how much data you want to manage in the future and think how are you going to exploit.
Performance and the integration tool.
The close approach to increase usability.
Involve in all stages of implementation process, helping even in the "evangelization" instances.
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.

The vendor is very set in its ways and can be blinkered when considering alternative ways to do things.
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.
Very stable, reliable and has good performance.
Teradata is slow to respond and are not inclined to embrace innovation.
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.
