Thank you for visiting my blog. I am a Cofounder & Technical Advisor here at the BeyeNETWORK. Having covered the business intelligence and data warehousing industry for more than 15 years, I'm looking forward to a more interactive form of communication with all of you. Please share your comments and thoughts!



I get invited to this meeting every year and it's always worth the time (thanks Kim). Teradata does a great job making the two day event engaging and informative. The executive team makes the event a priority and we get briefed by everyone.

Elizabeth Corley - VP of Communications and Infrastructure
Randy Lea - VP of Products and Service
Ed White - Director of Product Marketing
Dave Schrader - Director of Marketing and Strategy
Dan Graham - Enterprise Integration Program Manager
Dave Klumb - VP of Global Field Operations
Todd Walter - CTO
Tom Russell - Data Architecture and Modeling Solutions
Michael Goul - Teradata University
Mark Shainman - Senior Product Manager
Sam Gragg - VP CRM Solutions
Arlene Zaima - Strategic Analytics Program Manager
Sam Tawfik - Program Manager

I wanted to list the group to say thank you for your time but to also highlight how serious Teradata is when it comes to educating professionals. The opportunity to deep dive into a solution like Teradata for two days in invaluable.

I am taking away a ton of product information but at the same time a refreshed view of how they are approaching the industry. Their new family of products and features is making it easier for Teradata to embrace the challenges of their clients and prospects. In the past Teradata has been a bit inflexible around its methodologies and for good reason many of them have proven out to be Best Practice solutions. They are now taking a more agile approach to working with their clients and I think it will broaden their success in the marketplace. This isn't good news for the companies that compete with them. Much of what I saw this week was innovative, cutting edge and as I said above agile.
