Subj:   Re: Combining Business Data with Performance Data?
From:   Michael Larkins


My first thought regarding your question is "Good for you!"

I believe it follows that if we use Teradata as a relational database/warehouse to evaluate the business and the efforts improve the way we approach the methodology behind conducting business, why not evaluate the methodology behind the use of the warehouse too? After all, if we use the same approach on the database, would it not follow that improving the way we use the database would further improve the way we do business?

It seems to me that it becomes a self-perpetuating snowball effect through momentum. After all, isn't this the reason that warehouses which were projected to grow 10% per year are all of a sudden growing at 30% or more each year?

We often hear about ways that a variety of companies have accomplished what you are asking about at user group meetings around the country and world as well as excellent settings like Partners. I, along a thousand other people, find these arenas to be incredibly useful and recommend attendance and participation.

I look forward to reading responses from others on this topic.

Best regards and congratulations on asking an excellent question.
