JM Family Enterprises set to gain greater business intelligence with Teradata Active Enterprise data warehouse platform

Value and insight can lead to innovation and competitive breakthroughs

DAYTON, Ohio, August 12, 2010 -- Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), the world’s largest company solely focused on data warehousing and enterprise analytics, announced today that new customer JM Family Enterprises, Inc. has purchased a Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) platform to facilitate its need for business intelligence.

Teradata Professional Services supported the diversified automotive corporation in the implementation. Teradata Managed Services is now providing data warehouse infrastructure, data integration, and performance services while Teradata Customer Services is offering technical assistance for critical business services.

“With the implementation of the Teradata Active EDW platform, we have the ability to gain value and insight from new questions that lead to innovation and competitive breakthroughs,” said Rajeev Ravindran, vice president and chief technology officer, JM Family Enterprises.

Teradata was selected following an extensive proof-of-concept test that demonstrated a reduction in report run time from hours to minutes on the Active EDW. The new Teradata system enables JM Family to meet service level agreements for system performance and for business users to perform numerous ad hoc queries without assistance.

“Teradata was chosen simply because we were able to meet or exceed the success criteria set by JM Family for performance as well as for operation and acquisition cost,” said Keith Henry, vice president for manufacturing global industry solutions, Teradata Corporation.
