Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"One advantage is that if you already have an Oracle Database, it easily integrates with that.""The solution is self-securing. All data is encrypted and security updates and patches are applied automatically both periodically and off-cycle.""The solution integrates well with Power BI.""The performance and scalability are awesome."

"The most valuable features of Teradata are that it is a massively parallel platform and I can receive a lot of data and get the queries out correctly, especially if it's been appropriately designed. The native features make it very suitable for multiple large data tasks in a structured data environment. Additionally, the automation is very good.""The most valuable feature of Teradata is security. It runs on Unix and Linux platforms which provide better security.""I like this solution's ease of design and the fact that its performance is quite good. It is stable as well.""Teradata features high productivity and reliability because it has several redundancy options, so the system is always up and running.""I've never had any issues with scalability.""It's a pre-configured appliance that requires very little in terms of setting-up.""There are several features of Teradata that I like. One of the most basic is the indexes. I also like that it provides lower TCO. It also has the optimizer feature which is a good feature and isn't found in other legacy systems. Parallelism is also another feature I like in Teradata because when you are running or hosting on multiple systems, you have this shared-nothing architecture that helps. Loading and unloading in Teradata are also really helpful compared to other systems.""Teradata has good performance, the response times are very fast. Overall the solution is easy to use. When we do the transformation, we have all of our staging and aggregation data available."

More Teradata Pros →

"It doesn't work well when you have unstructured data or you need online analytics. It is not as nice as Hadoop in these aspects.""It is very important the integration with other platforms be made to be as easy as it is with an on-premises deployment.""The initial setup was pretty complex. It was not easy.""The solution could be improved by allowing for migration tools from other cloud services, including migration from Amazon Redshift, RDS, and Aurora."

More Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cons →

"It could use some more advanced analytics relating to structured and semi-structured data.""Teradata's UI could be more user-friendly.""Teradata could improve by being less complicated. There are some aspects that are not available on the Unix server and a Unix system is required to access some data, such as in case of an emergency.""Teradata needs to expand the kind of training that's available to customers. Teradata only offers training directly and doesn't delegate to any third-party companies. As a result, it's harder to find people trained on Teradata in our market relative to Oracle.""Teradata should focus on functionality for building predictive models because, in that regard, it can definitely improve.""I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved.""Apart from Control-M, it would be nice if it could integrate with other tools.""Teradata needs to pay attention to the cloud-based solution to make sure it runs smoothly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "You pay as you go, and you don't pay for services that you don't use."
  • "Cloud solutions are cheaper, but in the long run, they may not be much cheaper. They certainly have a lower initial cost. The licensing is yearly, and it is based on the size of the hardware and the number of users."
  • More Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The solution requires a license."
  • "The price of Teradata is on the higher side, and I think that it where they lose out on some of their business."
  • "The price of the solution could be reduced, it is expensive."
  • "Teradata is expensive, so it's typically marketed to big customers. However, there have been some changes, and Teradata is now offering more flexible pricing models and equipment leasing. They've added pay-as-you-go and cloud models, so it's changing, but Teradata is generally known as an expensive high-end product."
  • "The cost of running Teradata is quite high, but you get a good return on investment."
  • "Teradata pricing is fine, and it's competitive with all the legacy models. On a scale of one to five, with one being the worst and five being the best, I'm giving Teradata a three, because it can be a little expensive, when compared to other solutions."
  • "The price of Teradata is expensive. However, what they deliver they are outstanding. If you're looking for an inexpensive solution to run a database, this isn't your tool. It's the Ferrari of databases for data warehousing."
  • "The price of Teradata could be less expensive."
