Announcing the launch of  Teradatas Big Analytics Workshops


This highly interactive experience is led by practitioners with firsthand experience working with Teradata’s Unified Data Architecture™ (UDA) for Big Analytics. You will understand the UDA components, walk through several Aster advanced analytic use cases and construct multi-genre advanced analytic techniques at scale on multi-structured data. At the end of the session attendees will:


  • Participate in hands on exercises to ingest and analyze data across the UDA to derive critical business insights, and understand how insights could be operationalized in their unique business environments.
  • Learn about the variety of pre-built Aster analytical solutions (e.g., Customer Journey, On-site Search Optimization) that anyone in the organization can implement to address critical business needs at speed.
  • Get a deep dive review of some of the recently added cutting edge capabilities to Aster Analytics (e.g., Aster Analytics on Hadoop).
  • Obtain enough practitioner knowledge to become impassioned advocates of advanced analytics as a practice and Aster Analytics as the preferred solution within their organizations.


Last year, over 120 companies attended various Big Analytics Workshops and we hope to see you at one or more of these events
