Teradata positioned in Leaders Quadrant for Data Warehousing by Gartner

Evaluation Based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision

DAYTON, Ohio, October 16, 2007 -- Teradata Corporation (NYSE:TDC), the global leader in enterprise data warehousing, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned Teradata in the leaders’ quadrant in its “Data Warehouse DBMS Magic Quadrant – 2007,” authored by Donald Feinberg and Mark A. Beyer (Oct. 10, 2007). The report evaluates vendors that supply database management system software used to support data warehousing.

The report follows Teradata’s recent debut as a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange and completes a highly successful Teradata PARTNERS User Group conference. The event surpassed all previous records for attendance, participation and positive feedback from leading companies, partners, analysts, academics and other thought leaders.

“The Gartner Data Warehouse DBMS Magic Quadrant report is great news for Teradata and our extended community of users across the world,” said Randy Lea, vice president of Teradata product and services. “We are proud of our Gartner positioning based on the criteria detailed in the report, but more importantly, we believe they take great pains to validate marketing claims with customer reality and validate that customers do indeed achieve value and performance.”

According to Gartner, vendors who are positioned in the leaders’ quadrant are performing well today, have a clear vision of market direction and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.
