I'm not sure of which version of the solution we're using. It might be a previous version. I'd recommend the solution to other users and organizations. I would rate the solution nine out of ten. We are quite pleased with its general capabilities.

For the on-prem solution, there isn't really anyone who can compete with Teradata. I would rate it as eight out of ten.

I rate Teradata eight out of 10. Customers need a certain amount of knowledge to correctly use Teradata when running their applications on the platform. They should also keep in mind the requirements for Teradata's features.

This is a very good solution. After looking at the recent price drops, they need to offer very good discounts for people that bought it. The value proposition is actually quite good compared to many years ago. For most of the enterprises out there, they're focusing mainly on structure data. This solution ticks that box. As long as they can control the price incrementally in the future, I think they're a very good strong platform. I'd rate this product in terms of its functionality, stability, and scalability, as almost perfect. It's a nine out of ten. I don't think there's anything to complain about. It's only the price that's a sticking point for us.

On a scale from one to ten, I will rate Teradata a seven. An additional feature I would like to see included in the next release is that it needs to be more cloud-friendly. That's the one thing they're going to lose customers over, so that needs to improve. I know they're working on it, but they need to do it quicker.
