Ataccama Partners With Teradata to Improve DW Data Quality

Data quality, MDM, and data governance software vendor Ataccama Corporation announced that it has entered into a cooperative partnership with Teradata Corporation, a leader in data warehousing and enterprise analytics. The partnership is aimed at enabling joint customers to improve data quality within their data warehouses.

Ataccama is a global software company with headquarters in Prague, and offices in Toronto, Stamford, London, and Munich, and the new partnership with Teradata represents a worldwide geographical relationship, according to Michal Klaus, CEO, Ataccama Corp.

"The partnership will allow joint Teradata and Ataccama customers to leverage an enhanced development relationship between our two companies," Klaus tells 5 Minute Briefing.  "Our offerings are complementary. By partnering with Teradata, at this level, we anticipate significant benefit. First, we gain access to a full range of Teradata's developmental resources which will allow us to enhance our solutions and leverage the strengths of that platform for our mutual customers. Second, we will be able to take advantage of joint sales and marketing programs which will help generate more qualified opportunities for both organizations."

According to Klaus, the agreement is best characterized as a "go-to-market" type of partnership. "Our current product offerings do inter-operate with the Teradata platform as our Java based DQC and MDC applications can connect via JDBC links. Ataccama's applications which are developed on a unified code base provide high performance throughput, broad scalability and a lower cost footprint compared to other competitive data quality solutions available. In the near term our development team will work jointly with resources at Teradata to optimize our products in order to leverage additional platform benefits that our customers have come to expect."

Ataccama's suite of products which include Data Quality Analyzer, Data Quality Center, and Master Data Center are developed in Java and can provide direct access to Teradata databases via JDBC connections. Data Quality Issue Tracker, Ataccama's newest offering, is web-based and provides a workflow to monitor, resolve and maintain the quality of data within a Teradata environment.

"This is yet another example of our commitment to enable more companies to experience the power and precision of Teradata," said Scott Collins, vice president, Global Alliances, Teradata Corp. "We welcome Ataccama to the Teradata partnership family and look forward to working more closely with them in the global marketplace."
