Information Builders and Teradata Join Forces to Give Mid-Sized Enterprises Access to Powerful Business Intelligence
Partnership Provides One-Stop-Shop for Data Warehousing Through Information Builders' Robust WebFOCUS Platform
NEW YORK, NY, October 25, 2010
Information Builders, the independent leader in operational business intelligence (BI) solutions and Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), a global provider of data warehousing and enterprise analytics, today announced a partnership to streamline data warehousing across Teradata's Platform Family, specifically aimed against the company's Data Mart and Data Warehouse Appliance offerings with the Information Builders WebFOCUS platform. By tapping the joint offering, customers will have access to all the necessary software required to deliver a complete data warehousing and reporting solution.
To accommodate the enterprise's growing need for predictive modeling and scoring, Information Builders launched WebFOCUS RStat, an update to the BI platform enabling modeling in the R programming language. Integrated with Developer Studio and featuring a simple and intuitive user interface, RStat allows developers to work with the same tools to develop both the models and the applications that can be deployed to any worker in the organization. As part of Information Builders' partnership with Teradata, the company has extended the predictive analytics capabilities to provide an R solution for Teradata. It combines business intelligence, performance management, data integrity, and advanced analytics. The WebFOCUS BI infrastructure makes it easier for companies to deploy scoring solutions that transform, model, evaluate, and enable predictive analytics for a complete view of business operations. The partnership provides the added benefit of in-database scoring, enabling WebFOCUS models to run quickly and efficiently within the Teradata database.
"By consolidating into one integrated data warehouse and reporting solution from data previously stored in multiple areas, companies can capitalize on the power of information within an organization," said Ted Senemar, vice president, Mid Market Americas, Teradata. "Data will be consistent to provide accurate predictive analytics and business intelligence. The joint value proposition of Teradata and Information Builders is a cost-effective, efficient, and powerful solution for precise information management. Our platform family price points are bringing the power of Teradata and Information Builders to companies of all sizes.
"By combining predictive analytics, reporting, and ETL/ELT in a cost-effective package, we're giving organizations all the software they require for their data warehousing needs," said Gerald Cohen, CEO and founder of Information Builders. "Too many companies are devoting valuable time and resources to managing, collecting, and analyzing their data and, particularly in today's economy, this investment is not a model on which to build a successful business. Information Builders' partnership with Teradata will enable companies to streamline their processes and consolidate their data into one integrated source. As organizations continue to grow past their current ad hoc means of collecting and analyzing information, solutions such as our partnership will be a vital tool in structuring data and transforming it into impactful information."
