Teradata Vantage, the platform for Pervasive Data Intelligence

Cut through the complexity and partial answers of traditional analytics with the only platform designed for Pervasive Data Intelligence. 

Software Components

teradata sql engine

Teradata Vantage uses the Teradata SQL Engine because it offers a wide range of embedded analytic functions. These functions enable descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics with integrated data. As a result, you can implement complex analytics and analytic algorithms through a simple, intuitive SQL language that is widely used and compatible with your preferred analytics tools.

Our comprehensive approach to information security includes an orchestrated combination of technology and best practice processes.

Teradata Database – the core of the Teradata SQL Engine – is designed with a patented massively parallel processing (MPP) architecture. This allows complex analytics workloads to be broken down and distributed in order to perform as efficiently as possible. It’s the foundation of each Teradata system’s linear scalability, which can start small and scale to an enterprise-level, mission-critical analytics system.

machine learning engine The Vantage machine learning engine allows data scientists to write powerful, highly expressive machine learning functions. Teradata also provides more than 180 prebuilt analytic functions. Together they can transform, prepare, analyze, and visualize multi-structured data to address a wide number of business use cases, including customer churn, path to purchase, marketing attribution, product affinity, fraud, and marketing optimization. Check out our Data Science Community to learn more about the machine learning engine.
graph engine Vantage uses a native graph processing engine for graph analysis that identifies and measures relationships between people, products, and processes. Additional prebuilt graph analytic functions make it easy to solve complex business problems, such as social network/influencer analysis, fraud detection, supply chain management, network analysis and threat detection, and money laundering. Visit our Data Science Community for more information on graph engine.
analytic tools and languages Our services allow you to use your tools, your way. Vantage supports R, Python, Teradata Studio, Jupyter, RStudio, and any SQL-based tool, reducing the learning curve for all users in the analytic community.

Teradata APIs and connectors enable various languages and tools to connect seamlessly to Vantage, and each tool is supported through plug-ins, extensions, and connectors.
data store The norm at Teradata is the right mix of smarter, faster, and less expensive decisions, and, answers to previously unanswered questions. This is a result of the Vantage ties to Teradata Database, which it uses as a data store, accessing consolidated data. Holistically, this creates a persistent single view of the business. It also allows storage of relational tables with a row, column, or hybrid physical layout, maximizing flexibility in data storage strategy and automatically distributing evenly among processors for fast data access. Additionally, it stores multi-structured data such as JSON, BSON, XML, CSV, and AVRO natively, as well as advanced data formats such as geospatial, time series, and temporal.
