“The unique combination of geospatial power from ESRI and the marketing-leading Teradata database engine offers customers a new, advanced ability to solve business problems,” said Randy Lea, vice president, Teradata product and service marketing. “The new partnership makes it possible for customers to gain a business advantage by maximising how they leverage geospatial and business information.”
ESRI adds spatial ETL, content, analysis and visualisation and mapping to the Teradata functionality. This already offered over 60 geospatial analytical functions, such as points on a map, lines and polygons. The collaboration with ESRI bridges the gap between GIS and data warehousing.
“The partnership between ESRI and Teradata combine’s sophisticated spatial analytics and visualisation with high performance and event processing to deliver real-time spatial analytics,” said David Sonnen, senior analyst for spatial information at IDC. “The new capabilities allow retail, telecommunication, utilities, transportation and government agencies to manage and analyse millions of records of data on a national scale at speeds that have not been achieved in the past.”
