Microsoft in Alliance with Teradata

Microsoft and NCR’s Teradata division announced Monday an alliance meant to optimize interoperability between Microsoft’s business intelligence solutions and Teradata’s Enterprise Data Warehouse product.

The first target deliverable for the collaboration will be technologies to enhance interoperability between the Enterprise Data Warehouse and Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services -- with availability targeted for the end of the first quarter.

Other areas of the collaboration efforts will include SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services, SQL Server 2005 Integration Services, and the 2007 Microsoft Office system including Microsoft Office Excel 2007, Windows SharePoint Services and Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server 2007, according to a joint statement by the two companies.

“The combination of these powerful Microsoft and Teradata technologies will enable our joint customers to make better, faster decisions by infusing real-time intelligence into frontline operations and long-range strategic planning,” Randy Lea, vice president, Teradata products and services, said in the statement.

The worldwide relationship includes plans for joint sales and marketing activities across multiple industries, beginning with the retail sector, according to the companies.
