Teradata, a division of NCR Corp., announced the availability of its Warehouse 8.0 that claims to boost the performance of traditional decision-support capabilities with enhanced integration into the enterprise.

"Teradata Warehouse 8.0 is a promise fulfilled for companies seeking advanced business intelligence only possible by integrating data from historic trends with real-time actions," said CTO Stephen Brobst. This integrated suite of data warehouse software, hardware and consulting services have been optimized for decision support. From a single platform updated in near real-time, Teradata now enables businesses to run new powerful operational analytical applications while continuing to run their existing strategic analytical applications. These new applications can continuously monitor, detect and take decisive action that's been enhanced with business intelligence, at the time the event occurs. This event-detection capability, with the integrated business intelligence, is the foundation on which business applications and business processes will be built to provide automated decision-making, said the company.

Teradata Replication Services is a new feature of the Warehouse 8.0 that provides the ability to automatically capture real-time changes in the database and synchronize multiple Teradata databases to ensure that data is protected in the event of an outage.

As new operational analytical applications become deployed throughout the organization, many are becoming "mission critical," said the press release. "Teradata provides the capability to scale an enterprise data warehouse so that it provides for an unlimited number of concurrent users to perform an unlimited number of simple and complex querieswith linear performance characteristics," said Brobst.

Key components of the Warehouse 8.0 include the Teradata Database V2R6.0, Teradata Tools and Utilities 8.0, and the NCR 5380 Server. These components are accompanied by Teradata applications, partner applications and Teradata Global Consulting Services.

According to the company, the patent-pending Teradata Global Consulting Services data warehousing methodology has been updated to reflect the impact of innovative business processes enabled by the Warehouse 8.0. It also provides workshops for existing Teradata customers to ensure that they are leveraging the latest Teradata Warehouse 8.0 enhancements to realize maximum return on their data warehousing investment.
