After I sent my last note, I started thinking that interface tools really can't be dependent on ANSI compliance - I remembered that when
I attended the original V2R2 briefing (probably a couple of years ago), the claim was made that the Teradata database was the only database
platform that had met Entry-Level ANSI compliance (I assume that others have since qualified). So it doesn't seem as if there is a
particular reason to be ANSI compliant. Is it just a marketing thing?
Don't get me wrong, I like the idea that NCR has made the effort - but I largely view it as being some really nice extensions to Teradata
SQL. My curiosity is whether ANSI compliance represents more.
