NEW ORLEANS, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC), the global leader in analytic data platforms, applications and services, today announced plans to deliver embedded Predictive Analytics in upcoming releases of its Campaign Management portfolio, an Integrated Marketing Management solution from Teradata Applications.
Available later this year, the new Predictive Analytics functions will make it easy for marketers to apply forward-looking models to their data-driven marketing efforts, so they won't have to rely solely on historical data models. With Teradata's new Predictive Analytics capability, marketers will now be able to:
- Employ forward-looking "Flip the Switch" analytics to instantly go from reverse-modeling to forward-prediction of best campaign participants;
- Use model scores as selection criteria for campaigns; and,
- Select/manage which models are being used to score the customers for campaigns.
The new Predictive Analytics functionality will be available by late 2013 for both the on-premise and Cloud versions of all current and prior releases of Teradata's Relationship Manager, and be incorporated in the forthcoming major release of its Campaign Management solution, likewise due in late 2013, the company said.According to the customer reference survey for the Gartner Magic Quadrant for BI platforms in 2012, organizations predominantly use BI technologies that measure the past — such as reporting, ad hoc analysis, and dashboards — with a small percentage of organizations (13%) currently reporting extensive use of predictive analytics. Moreover, Gartner estimates that an even smaller percentage of organizations (under 3%) use prescriptive capabilities such as decision/mathematical modeling, simulation and optimization. This is changing as organizations recognize that delivering next-generation advanced analytics to an expanded set of users will realize significant value in terms of innovation, productivity and growth .

"Forward-looking modeling was mainly available in the world of Ph.D's and data scientists, and marketing users were limited in their 'predictive' ability. Now, by adding easy-to-use Predictive Analytics to our Integrated Marketing Management solutions, literally every marketer can become a data scientist, every business a more data-driven enterprise."
