DALLAS, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PARTNERS User Group Conference - Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the leading analytic data platforms, applications and services company, introduced today the Teradata Cloud, which delivers sophisticated analytics as a service with rapid provisioning and scalability in a subscription model. Teradata is also making available its powerful, market-leading technologies including Teradata Database and Teradata Aster Discovery Platform as a service for data warehousing and discovery analytics. These combined offers allow customers to benefit from Teradata's Unified Data Architecture to enable business insight from all types of data – with the additional option of cloud-based delivery.
"With the Teradata Cloud, Teradata offers the broadest range of analytic solutions in the marketplace; we provide the solution you want, when you want it, and where you want it," said Scott Gnau, President of Teradata Labs. "Teradata Cloud increases your infrastructure choices, is TCO-neutral to the on-premise solution, and because it's backed by Teradata there's no need to accept restrictions on application design, feature functionality, or performance."
The Teradata Cloud includes Data Warehouse as a Service which is available today in the United States. With Data Warehouse as a Service, customers can access Teradata Database, ETL and BI ecosystems—managed by Teradata—in a secure and reliable production class environment in the cloud. In this cloud model, Teradata assumes all responsibility for hardware/software and also daily end-to-end operations via Teradata Managed Services. In addition, these capabilities are available on a monthly subscription.
"The market for cloud analytics will grow in the next 3-5 years," said Shawn Rogers, vice president, Enterprise Management Associates, a consulting firm specializing in analytics and cloud technology. "With this new cloud offer, Teradata delivers a flexible, scalable option for a complete set of cloud-based analytics, industry expertise and consulting services."
In the first half of 2014, Teradata will enhance the Teradata Cloud by adding Discovery as a Service and Data Management as a Service, meaning that Teradata's entire Unified Data Architecture can be implemented as an on-premise private cloud or inside the Teradata Cloud. Teradata Cloud includes rapid provisioning, flexible pricing options and scalability as needed. To complete the cloud package, Teradata offers industry starter kits, for rapid data modeling, data loading and BI reporting to help drive immediate business value.
- Data Warehouse as a Service is powered by Teradata Database, the world's most advanced database engine. Teradata Database is well-suited for cloud computing with virtualized resources, consistent performance and linear scalability. Teradata Database's ease of use, combined with true query and workload parallelism, allows it to achieve performance and throughput levels not found in any other RDBMS. The world's leading companies in all industries have chosen Teradata Database for data warehousing.
- Discovery as a Service takes advantage of Teradata Aster Discovery Platform with its patented SQL-MapReduce® to enable rapid exploration and discovery from diverse data via business intelligence, data integration, and analytic tools. Any SQL-savvy analyst or business user will find it easy to use, yet it is powerful enough for the most sophisticated data scientists. Teradata Aster Discovery Platform has more than 80 pre-built SQL-MapReduce functions, accessible via SQL, for data acquisition, data preparation, analysis and visualization. Users can perform analytics such as digital marketing optimization, fraud detection, social network analysis, machine data analysis, and text and graph analysis.
- Data Management as a Service capitalizes on open source Hadoop for the processing of large data sets in a distributed computing environment. Hadoop was created to capture, store and refine data – and serves organizations best as a contributory processing platform in centralized data warehouse environments.
"Teradata Cloud is an additional way to deliver world-class analytics," said Ed White, General Manager, Teradata Cloud Solutions. "This is a secure and highly available cloud solution that offers customers powerful and advanced analytics for all data types – structured and multi-structured – in optional packages for economic flexibility."
For Teradata Cloud, there are four elements to each "as a service" offer:
- Cloud Foundation: for cloud infrastructure functions such as hardware and software monitoring and maintenance, security administration, backup and recovery, and resource provisioning.
- Enhanced Services: for implementation of advanced database features and additional security protection for sensitive data (HIPAA, SOX, and other personally identifiable information) and extended backup, archive and restore options.
- Consulting Services: for advising on analytic best practices, migrating from existing databases, database administration, data quality, implementing new applications, providing analytic access to BI applications, and building custom data warehouse applications.
- Industry Starter Kits: for retail, communications, media and entertainment, government and more that include high-level logical and physical data models, load scripts and industry report templates for a fast on-ramp to the cloud.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
