May 20, 2008 - Nishi-Nippon Railroad (Nishitetsu) completed implementation of a multiple-terabyte Teradata information management system and database software to support the launch of a new consumer smart card system.


With headquarters in Fukuoka, the railway operates local and highway buses, air cargo, real estate and travel agencies, as well as railways in the Fukuoka prefecture.


The new intelligence environment provides data visibility and business insight in support of the new smart card ticketing system called "Nimoca," in the Fukuoka prefecture for railway lines, bus routes and department stores. The Teradata platform supports deep analysis of customer and transportation data to improve operational strategy and better serve customers using the card.


"Teradata Japan is privileged to provide supporting business intelligence for this exciting new system," said Kazutoshi Terakawa, solution sales director for retail data warehousing, Teradata Japan. "We expect this innovative program to grow and serve as an example of what is possible with advanced analytics, an enterprise data warehouse and the vision of thought leaders such as those at Nishitetsu."
