"As expected, Teradata customers made an impressive showing in the 2003 TopTen Program, capturing nearly 40 percent of all DSS awards in our 'Unix' and 'All Environments' categories. Based on a range of Winter Corporation consulting and research activities, including the TopTen Program, we see that Teradata continues its long-standing leadership in high-end data warehousing,' said Richard Winter, president of Winter Corporation.

"The dominance of Teradata customers in the survey mirrors what we see in the market," said Vickie Farrell, vice president of Teradata warehouse marketing.
