Top Executive: President and CEO Victor Lund
Teradata was in many respects the original data warehouse system vendor, developing hardware/software systems specifically for data warehouse applications, in contrast to competitors that adapted their transaction processing systems to function as data warehouses.
Today Teradata, based in Dayton, Ohio, offers a line of purpose-built data warehouse platforms running the company's Teradata Database, business analytics software and other big data products. The systems run on premise and in private clouds: In March the company launched the Teradata IntelliCloud packaged software-as-a-service offering.
Teradata was in the leader quadrant in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Management Solutions for Analytics and achieved the highest position for "completeness of vision."
