Earlier today I’ve posted about Teradata’s take on the evolution of databases. As expected, everything is safe and under control. Now this report from Larry Dignan for ZDNet about Teradata Q4 earnings call presents Teradata’s perspective about Hadoop:
Teradata’s fourth quarter earnings were solid, but analysts peppered management with questions about Hadoop as data warehouse revenue worries persist.
Teradata CEO Mike Koehler and CFO Steve Scheppmann talked Hadoop throughout the company’s conference call. Was Hadoop taking Teradata’s business away? What’s the revenue hit? Can Teradata co-exist?
Once again everything is safe with a bright future. Until it isn’t anymore and Hadoop eats the enterprise data warehouse space. In Teradata’s defense, they’ve been one of the first companies that has looked seriously at Hadoop and came up with a coherent positioning.
