Bill Franks, Teradata chief analytics officer and author of the book, " Taming the Big Data Tidal Wave: Finding Opportunities in Huge Data Streams with Advanced Analytics," said, "Analytic talent is in huge demand today and having this certification can speed the initial screening process by validating that a candidate has the base technical skills. This allows the interviewer to focus on the other critical skills such as business knowledge and communications abilities."A student certification pilot program conducted in the spring of 2012 involved a small group of undergraduate and graduate students from three universities: Arizona State, Oklahoma State and University of Georgia. All of those who completed the free online training course and the examination had little or no prior expertise with the Teradata Database or the Teradata data warehouse platform. Of those who passed the exam, 80 percent became Teradata Certified Professionals, while 20 percent earned Teradata Certified Associates accreditation.
