Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation, announced the shipment of Teradata Warehouse 8.1, a suite of software, hardware and consulting services, with new capabilities that make it easier to build and manage the next generation of active data warehouses that drive enterprise intelligence throughout the organization.

Teradata Warehouse 8.1 has a range of enhancements to optimize an active data warehouse including Teradata Active System Management, a set of system management software that makes it easier to monitor and manage a Teradata data warehousing environment. Today, Teradata customers have environments where data is continuously loaded and processed - operational intelligence is "pushed" out to thousands of front-line users, while knowledge workers are simultaneously running multiple applications with both strategic and unplanned queries. Teradata Active System Management monitors the query activity in real time with an on-screen dashboard, and provides tools so administrators can better manage the system to ensure business users get consistent, predictable response times from their complex environments.

As a part of its data warehouse solution, Teradata partners with leading software vendors to serve its customers. The following partners have tested and validated that their software is compatible with Teradata Warehouse 8.1: Ab Initio, ADVIZOR, Ascential, Atanasoft, BEZ, Business Objects, Cognos, Embarcadero Technologies (formerly Ambeo), ETI, GoldenGate, Hyperion, Informatica, KXEN, MicroStrategy, Protegrity, SAS, Siebel Systems, Tibco, Valyd, and Ward Analytics.

"Teradata's Warehouse 8.1 is an important evolution in enterprise data warehouse management, allowing administrators marked improvement in overall system governance and performance," said Girish Pancha, executive vice president of products at Informatica. "Combined with Informatica PowerCenter data integration platform, Warehouse 8.1 supports the high-performance, highly scalable requirements of our joint customers. Together, Teradata and Informatica can help further extend the value of our customers' data warehouse investments to enterprise-wide data integration."
