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.

Teradata Warehouse Miner (TWM) is a set of Microsoft .NET interfaces and a multi-tier user interface that together help you understand the quality of data residing in a Teradata system, create analytic data sets, and build and score analytic models directly in the Teradata NewSQL Engine.

The tables below show the mapping of TWM functions and features to their Teradata Vantage™ counterparts in the Teradata Machine Learning Engine. These counterparts provide similar functionality but not necessarily complete parity.
For information about all of the features and functions provided by TWM and Vantage, see Additional References.
