Information Builders and Teradata Corp. Announce Partnership

The partnership pairs Teradata’s Data Mart and Data Warehouse Appliance offerings with the Information Builders WebFOCUS RStat platform.

Business intelligence developer Information Builders and Teradata Corp. have announced a partnership aimed at streamlining data warehousing across Teradata’s platform family. Specifically, the partnership pairs Teradata’s Data Mart and Data Warehouse Appliance offerings with the Information Builders WebFOCUS platform.

Information Builders launched WebFOCUS RStat recently to accommodate “growing need for predictive modeling and scoring.” Essentially RStat is an update of the BI platform.

RStat enables modeling in the R programming language. It integrates with Developer Studio, and it features a relatively simple user interface so that developers have access to the tools necessary for modeling and application deployment alike.

Now, through its partnership with Teradata Corp., Information Builders has extended the predictive analysis capabilities of RStat. Combining business intelligence, performance management, data integrity, and advanced analytics, the WebFOCUS BI infrastructure makes it easier for companies to deploy scoring solutions that transform, model, evaluate, and enable predictive analytics for a complete view of business operations.

In a press release submitted to Channel Pro-SMB, Information Builders says its partnership with Teradata “provides the added benefit of in-database scoring, enabling WebFOCUS models to run quickly and efficiently within the Teradata database.”

Ted Senemar, Teradata’s vice president of mid-market Americas, says the consolidation of data into a single integrated warehouse provides SMBs with accurate predictive analytics and business intelligence. “The joint value proposition of Teradata and Information Builders is a cost-effective, efficient, and powerful solution for precise information management,” he says.

For Information Builder’s part, the team-up with Teradata means being able to combine predictive analytics, reporting, and ETL/ELT in “a cost-effective package” for data warehousing.

“Too many companies are devoting valuable time and resources to managing, collecting, and analyzing their data,” says Information Builders CEO and founder Gerald Cohen. “Information Builders’ partnership with Teradata will enable companies to streamline their processes and consolidate their data into one integrated source. As organizations continue to grow past their current ad hoc means of collecting and analyzing information, solutions such as our partnership will be a vital tool in structuring data and transforming it into impactful information.”
