The Texas-based regional retail grocery chain operating in 50 locations, United Supermarkets, has selected Teradata Corporation to meet its growing and comprehensive enterprise information requirements.
The retailer is deploying a multiple-terabyte data warehouse appliance from Teradata with the retail decisions enterprise suite, the retail logical data model, and Teradata professional services. In addition, the project is a win for the Teradata accelerate for data warehousing program, a package including software, hardware and services, which enables companies to rapidly deploy and realize business value from their data warehouse investment.
The Teradata system will integrate and centralise the rapid flow of complex business information collected from across the organisation and its thousands of sources and touchpoints. The Teradata system will be used for advanced business analysis of detail data, directly aimed at providing new insight for category management and marketing decision making
“We were impressed by Teradata’s retail expertise, professional consulting services and its ability to deliver a system that is a perfect fit and price for our business and technology requirements,” said Chris St. Clair, CIO, United Supermarkets, LLC. “Teradata gets retail – and they know exactly what we need. We increasingly rely on detailed and predictive insight to be successful – and the power of Teradata’s enterprise-class analytics has come at just the right time for our business.”
“Retailers that choose Teradata over competing vendors do so because they are making a long-term investment in a powerful intelligence engine that meets very specific requirements for their unique business organisations and users — and returns great value,” said Ed Dupee, vice president of global retail marketing and solutions for Teradata.
“The best retailers don’t simply buy boxes. They have complex sets of requirements that most data platform vendors either don’t understand or cannot adequately address. We are pleased to welcome United Supermarkets into the global Teradata retail community.”
The Teradata retail customer community includes 70 per cent of the top 20 retailers in the world, including the world’s largest retailer – plus the largest retail chains based in France, in Germany and in the UK
“We have been seeing an uptick in store chains and online retailers coming to us for expertise and the solutions they need to extend their enterprise intelligence capabilities,” said Dupee. “Just a few of these that we can mention include Amazon.com, Apple, Cabela’s, Charming Shoppes, CVS, GAP Inc., Grupo Cortefiel, Haggen Stores, JD Williams, JC Penney, Limited Stores, Lund Food Holdings, OTTO Group, Overstock.com, Rakuten (Japan-online), Sheetz, Shop Direct, Tesco, Williams-Sonoma, Winn-Dixie and many supermarket chains from around the world.”
