Teradata Vantage™ is our flagship analytic platform offering, which evolved from our industry-leading Teradata® Database. Until references in content are updated to reflect this change, the term Teradata Database is synonymous with Teradata Vantage.

Advanced SQL Engine (was NewSQL Engine) is a core capability of Teradata Vantage, based on our best-in-class Teradata Database. Advanced SQL refers to the ability to run advanced analytic functions beyond that of standard SQL.

Vantage Analyst encompasses features that individuals in different roles can benefit from.
  • Citizen data scientists can:
    • Curate datasets and apply advanced analytics to draw insights that predict churn, detect fraud, or predict mechanical failures. This information can be used to build and train predictive models to forecast business outcomes via propensity scores.
    • Use tools to visualize trends without requiring any coding to run path analysis to discover the most common event patterns such as path to churn, hospital readmission, and cart abandonment.
  • Business analysts use a set of a capabilities that:
    • Facilitate frictionless discovery process: Powerful analytic platform with a rich set of multi-genre analytics and user-friendly and self-service tool

      Discover business-changing insights that were previously unknown

      Quickly iterate analytics for rapid hypothesis testing and discovery

    • Enable simplified access to complex analytics: No need to know programming languages to perform complex analytics

      Spend more time in analysis instead of coding through a powerful GUI-guided process

      Innovative analysis leveraging multiple data sources and data types for factual and behavioral insights

    • Streamline the operationalization of the data science process: Easily share and reuse discoveries

      Quickly operationalize their analysis, including integration with business-critical applications

      Run complex analytics at enterprise scale and integration
