Teradata has undergone a transformation of its own, with a new focus on solving business problems
A lot of the talk at Teradata Universe 2017 this week has been about how the company has transformed itself into becoming a more open, customer-centric and business outcome-focused organisation.
So, everything the company does now is geared towards solving business problems and delivering business outcomes.
Essentially, this involves asking businesses what questions they want answered and then deploying tools and services in line with that, rather than simply shoving technology down their throats.
“Teradata, many years ago, was totally business focused,” explained Peter Mikkelsen, EVP of Teradata’s international business.
“We probably lost our way a little bit in becoming too IT focused in the 90s and the 2000s and I think we’re coming back to our roots by being more business focused.
