NCR Teams with Torrent to Deliver Data Warehouse Apps

NCR Corp. (Dayton, Ohio, and Torrent Systems (Cambridge, Mass., announced a partnership in which the two companies plan to deliver business intelligence applications for data warehouses.

Under the terms of the agreement, Torrent’s Orchestrate software will be ported to NCR’s Teradata database and WorldMark family of servers by the first quarter of 1999.

The partnership will enable data warehouse users to create and execute large-scale parallel applications that provide significant advances in performance and scalability. Most business intelligence applications are designed to run on only one processor at a time, and suffer sequential bottlenecks that limit their ability to process large amounts of data. With the NCR/Torrent solution, applications will run in parallel, making it possible to analyze vast amounts of data to find answers to highly complex business problems that could not previously be solved.

"Through the [combination] of Orchestrate and Teradata, our joint customers will now be able to build highly scalable applications that were previously too costly and complex. We clearly see this technology as an emerging trend with many of our data warehouse customers," says Dan Harrington, vice president of Data Warehouse Marketing for NCR’s Computer Systems Group. – Thomas Sullivan, Staff Reporter/Reviews Editor
