Teradata is positioned as a leader in the latest Forrester Wave for Hadoop-optimized systems published on May 25, 2016. Forrester evaluated seven vendors across 26 criteria for this Wave including current offer, strategy and market presence and identified key differentiating factors in scale, automation and tooling for hardware and software.
Pervasive technology and operational challenges in deploying Hadoop platforms, especially when supporting complex workloads and dealing with hundreds of terabytes or petabytes of data slow down the speed of implementation. Hadoop optimized systems offer key benefits and advantages including faster time-to-value, reduced costs, minimized administration efforts and modular expansion in enterprise deployments.
Teradata has been recognized as one of the few vendors that have had significant success with data management appliances over the past decade. Its fifth-generation Hadoop appliance (Teradata Appliance for Hadoop 5) was cited as ‘efficient and refined’ and is positioned as a Leader. Teradata Appliance for Hadoop comes integrated with latest versions of Hadoop from Cloudera or Hortonworks and value-added software from Teradata and is delivered ready to run to accelerate the hadoop deployments.
