Teradata provides industrial-strength database power optimized for data warehouse and decision support systems.

Common Uses

Teradata and their industry focused solutions allow students from all over the world to gain practical experience by applying industrial-strength tools to real-world datasets. Teradata had not only provided their database solution, but included their Teradata SQL Assistant which stores, retrieves, and manipulates data from any Teradata Database, but also provides an ODBC interface to connect with other databases. In addition, students can learn state of the art analytics with Teradata's Vantage Platform.
