Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This is a wonderful database that is, in my opinion, underrated. Users are able to get the most out of my experience by taking advantage of its centralized environment.""Provides very good integration.""I like that SAP ASE can match code and the database index to index data in the programming language. There are many other valuable features, such as the table buffer, tuning, and various control agents like dispatcher. SAP ASE can handle many different data types, including views, domains, data elements, structures, objects, and various table types that are most useful in the application. Its modularization technique is also handy."

"The flexibility in design is very good.""I've never had any issues with scalability.""It's a pre-configured appliance that requires very little in terms of setting-up.""The performance is great, we are able to query our data in one operation.""Teradata's most valuable feature is that it's easy to use.""Teradata features high productivity and reliability because it has several redundancy options, so the system is always up and running.""The functionality of the solution is excellent.""The most valuable feature of Teradata is security. It runs on Unix and Linux platforms which provide better security."

More Teradata Pros →

"I think that the solution needs to be positioned better within the market as it appears as though the Adaptive Server is being left out of the SAP scope.""SAP should refine its debugging method, and the process needs to be a little faster. It should use more Pragmas and fewer pseudocomments. I would like if SAP added more features based on advanced technologies, like artificial intelligence and voice control. The modularization and if-else techniques could also incorporate the latest technology to code and solve complex problems. The SAP Editor should be more elaborative, and it should allow many more types of statements for all uses.""User interface could be more user friendly."

More SAP Adaptive Server Enterprise Cons →

"Teradata's pricing is quite high compared to Redshift, Synapse, or GCP alternatives.""I would like to see more integration with many different types of data.""The setup is not straightforward.""Apart from Control-M, it would be nice if it could integrate with other tools.""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.""I've been using the same UI for 20 years in Teradata. It could use some updating. Adding more stability around Teradata Studio would be outstanding. Teradata Studio is a Java-based version of their tool. It's much better now, but it still has some room for improvement."

  • "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."
