I agree with Bob. We are in an age of hyper growth. i.e. For every risk/radical change that is planned, there better be a good return on investment.

Unfortunately, we are very short term focused and this is HURTING business application of innovation in computing. Can we help change that?????

In this discussion, we are not just talking of hardware. I am sure Teradata will be (it better)running on Dell's and Gateway's in near future (commodity hardware). The topic is more of fundamental change in architecture for the same application of technology.

What will it take to bring these innovation in computing to commerical world?


I agree but most small and middle tier companys, as well as many larger business, do not purchase hardware of this magnitude outright. Most Teradata installations I've been involved with are by leases. So, one might venture to guess that NCR may be sweating bullets when it comes time to negotiate or extend a new lease, if other, faster, less expensive hardware is available. Especially if the existing data structures can simply be transplanted without any re-engineering...

Don't you think?
