Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Teradata can be deployed on-premise, on the cloud, or in a virtual machine, which means customers can move without having to create their architecture all over again.""It's a pre-configured appliance that requires very little in terms of setting-up.""I've never had any issues with scalability.""Teradata features high productivity and reliability because it has several redundancy options, so the system is always up and running.""The flexibility in design is very good.""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.""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 performance is great, we are able to query our data in one operation."

More VMware Tanzu Greenplum Pros →

"Teradata's pricing is quite high compared to Redshift, Synapse, or GCP alternatives.""Teradata needs to pay attention to the cloud-based solution to make sure it runs smoothly.""Apart from Control-M, it would be nice if it could integrate with other tools.""The scalability could be better. The on-premises solution is always more complicated to scale.""I'm not sure about the unstructured data management capabilities. It could be improved.""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.""I would like to see more integration with many different types of data.""Teradata's UI could be more user-friendly."

More Teradata Cons →

"They should add more analytics. Their documentation could also be improved so that I don't have to bother my co-workers and tech support so often.""The initial setup is somewhat complex and the out-of-the-box configuration requires optimization.""Extra filters would be helpful."

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."
