Teradata Partners User Group

Road trip! Next week, I’m heading to Teradata Partners User Group and Conference in Las Vegas, and I’m looking forward to it. The event should be a fantastic opportunity to take a peak inside the Teradata world.

The event is a way for Trillium Software to celebrate its partnership with Teradata. This partnership has always made a lot of sense to me. Teradata and Trillium Software have had similar game-plans throughout the years – focus on your core competency, be the best you can be at it, but maintain an open and connectible architecture that allows in other high-end technologies. There are many similarities in the philosophies of the two companies.

Both companies have architecture that works well in particularly large organizations with vast amounts of data. One key feature with Teradata, for example, is that you can linearly expand the database capacity response time by adding more nodes to the existing database. Similarly, with Trillium Software, you can expand the number of records cleansed in real-time by adding more nodes to the cleansing system. Trillium Software uses a load balancing technology called the Director to manage cleansing and matching on multiple servers. In short, both technologies will scale to support very large volumes of complex, global data.

The estimate is for about 4000 Teradata enthusiasts to show up and participate in the event. So, if you’re among them, please come by the Trillium Software exhibit and say hello.
