Subj:   Re: Teradata vs IBM UDB
From:   Ken Hansen

When talking to users, identify the views of business data analysts on the flexibility and ease of arranging changed/additional/ad-hoc reports. Also compare the skillset required and scope of DBA and ETL activities.

NCR regularly have phone conferences where a customer shares their experience with potential customers and the speakers frequently compare their experience with other hardware.

"Horses for courses" is one view. UDB could be very good if you already have the skillset, know/foresee what is needed and have the tools and time to set up the data model and reports but I have yet to meet an organisation where datawarehouse implementation does not lead to discovery of unexpected data requirements/trends which result in growth and changes in data analysis requirements. There, Teradata gives unique advantages. Do phone if you want to share circumstances and my experience as an independent consultant.
