Teradata CEO salutes re-energised company with new customer-centric focus
Teradata CEO Victor Lund believes the company has got its focus and “swagger” back in his first year in charge after stagnating as a company and forgetting to put customers first.
Speaking at Teradata Universe 2017 in Nice, Lund has been keen to emphasise the internal cultural transformation that has taken place at Teradata over the last 12 months, with a new focus on the customer and solving business problems.
“We had lost the focus that we were really here to help our customers succeed and not just sell technology,” he said.
“Technology is core to what Teradata does, but we had forgotten that we had to change and move the way our customers want us to.
“Our customers wanted to deploy Teradata in ways that we simply weren’t making available.
