Teradata Introduces Data Mining Accelerator

Teradata Introduces Data Mining Accelerator Packages To Simplify Implementation, Shorten Startup, Get Results

Auckland, New Zealand -- Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR), introduced Data Mining Accelerator Packages designed to simplify data mining startup and enable businesses to get results in less time. The packages, available in three configurations, are a combination of software and consulting services that enable businesses to integrate data mining into day-to-day operations across the enterprise to better serve customers.

"The Teradata Data Mining Accelerator Packages allow us to take something that’s always been a complex, complicated process and simplify it for our users,” said Julian Beavis, Teradata vice president for Australia and New Zealand. “The Teradata Data Mining Accelerator Packages make it easy for business to understand and use data mining to achieve tangible results, even if they’ve had no previous experience with data mining.”

"Our data mining consultants enable Teradata customers to recognise cross-selling and up-selling opportunities in their business, while improving customer retention and prospect classification. With the kind of data analysis available as a result of the new packages, businesses are better able to understand the needs of their customers and enhance internal operations," said Beavis.

Businesses in many industries depend on Teradata data mining products and expertise to fully leverage the data in their warehouses. A retailer uses data mining to increase the sales-response rate by personalising customer relationships on the Web, in stores and through the catalog.

Teradata customers, such as a Midwest-based healthcare provider, identify high-risk patients and respond with case-management programs that maintain the quality of care and manage risk. A South American telecommunications firm anticipates and prevents the loss of high-value customers by identifying patterns that lead to customer attrition by analysing phone usage, services purchased and service-quality ratings. An insurance company based in the U.S. relies on the timelines of Teradata data mining to anticipate and quickly detect fraud and then take immediate action to minimise costs.

Data mining technology enables business executives to advance from describing historical customer behavior to predicting future behavior. These findings can be used to increase revenue, reduce expenses and identify business opportunities, offering new competitive advantages.

The Teradata Data Mining Accelerator Packages include Teradata Warehouse Miner 3.1 data mining software and the expertise of the Professional Services consulting team, and draws on the power of the Teradata® data warehouse. This combination of resources enables the IT Department, data mining team and business users to work together to build data mining competence regardless of the current level of proficiency.

The Teradata Data Mining Accelerator Packages come in three basic configurations:

 Exploration Package -- Helps businesses that are unfamiliar with data mining to understand the application and business value of predictive analysis.

 Expansion Package -- Training program guides businesses to build data mining competency and make the business insights easily accessible to business users.

 Expert Package -- Assists businesses experienced with data mining to integrate data mining technology into the enterprise data warehouse and solve specific problems.
