Atlanta -- Teradata, the analytic data platforms, marketing applications, and services company, announced that it is working with Office Depot to expand the retailer’s enterprise data warehouse (EDW) with the very latest Teradata platforms and innovation. The new Teradata Active EDW can support the most demanding real-time workloads, with the ability for unlimited concurrent users to run queries against massive data volumes. It automatically bundles memory, solid state drive (SSD)-based flash memory, and traditional disk storage so that users get memory speed combined with depth of analysis.
The new Teradata capabilities will support Office Depot’s growing analytic needs across the company’s more than 2,000 stores, e-commerce sites and dedicated business-to-business sales organization.
Office Depot is also replacing its current test and development environment with a Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance, and is implementing Teradata Database, software that will enable Teradata Intelligent Memory with optimized access to hot and cold data – and temporal, columnar, and advanced compression.
“In today’s environment, business and information are increasingly complex. Detailed data integration services and platforms will continue to be central to facilitating our alignment of shared metrics, processes and operational reporting,” said Todd Hale, CIO at Office Depot. “We expect our Teradata environment and new database capabilities to enhance our analytic insight and business performance at a time when our data volume is growing significantly.”
