LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tesco today announces our continued commitment to Teradata - our long standing partner for data warehousing solutions. “The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) on Teradata is central to the Tesco business intelligence strategy delivering both management information and analytical services to the 13 countries that Tesco operates in as well as our Sourcing Centres and Service Centre in India,” said Chris Brocklesby, UK IT Director.
“Tesco is satisfied with the consistently high performance delivered by Teradata and particularly its proven ability to run a mixed workload of management information and complex analytics,” added Marcel Borlin, Programme Manager at Tesco. “As part of our ongoing programme to evaluate different technologies and architectures, we have deployed some analytical users on a small Netezza system which has been reported in the press recently. This implementation does not reflect any dissatisfaction with Teradata. Tesco continues to add new applications to the Teradata EDW which has now grown to 60 terabytes. The EDW is providing Management Information Systems for Commercial Reporting, Supply Chain and Stores as well as Tescolink thereby providing information to 8000 people across more than 2000 suppliers.”
“The Teradata EDW delivers significant business value by providing a single integrated view of the Tesco business and Tesco is committed to further developing our relationship with Teradata as a strategic partner,” said Chris Brocklesby.
