Data integration and advanced analytics to improve category management and marketing
Dayton, Ohio, February, 2010 - Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), the world's largest company solely focused on data warehousing and enterprise analytics, announced recently that United Supermarkets, a Texas-based regional retail grocery chain with stores in 50 locations, has selected Teradata to meet its growing and comprehensive enterprise information requirements.
The retailer is deploying a multiple-terabyte Data Warehouse Appliance from Teradata with the Retail Decisions Enterprise Suite, the Retail Logical Data Model, and Teradata Professional Services. In addition, the project is a win for the Teradata Accelerate for Data Warehousing program, a package including software, hardware and services, which enables companies to rapidly deploy and realize business value from their data warehouse investment.
The Teradata system will integrate and centralize the rapid flow of complex business information collected from across the organization and its thousands of sources and touchpoints. The Teradata system will be used for advanced business analysis of detail data, directly aimed at providing new insight for category management and marketing decision making.

We increasingly rely on detailed and predictive insight to be successful - and the power of Teradata's enterprise-class analytics has come at just the right time for our business."

"The best retailers don't simply buy boxes. They have complex sets of requirements that most data platform vendors either don't understand or cannot adequately address. We are pleased to welcome United Supermarkets into the global Teradata retail community."
The Teradata retail customer community includes seventy percent of the top 20 retailers in the world, including the world's largest retailer - plus the largest retail chains based in France, in Germany and in the U.K.
