Teradata Enterprise Access for Hadoop includes two new, innovative features that make access to data in Hadoop easy and secure for business analysts across the enterprise - Teradata smart loader for Hadoop and Teradata SQL-H™. Teradata ® Enterprise Access for Hadoop is the first solution to provide organizations with robust security, workload management, and comprehensive standard ANSI SQL support on Apache Hadoop. Working within the Teradata Unified Data Architecture, Teradata Enterprise Access for Hadoop removes these obstacles or bottlenecks allowing organizations more choices for implementation of their unified data architecture. Because of the flexibility that Teradata offers, organizations are better able to build complete, best of breed, and cost-effective analytic enterprise architectures that are easy to use and manage.

The Teradata Unified Data Architecture, which was previously announced, brings together Teradata, Teradata Aster, and Hadoop technology as well as best-of-breed partner tools to create a cohesive architecture. This new best-of-breed architecture makes Teradata the first vendor to provide a truly comprehensive framework to handle all types of data and any analytic techniques.

"Today's announcement of Teradata Enterprise Access for Hadoop is another example of our aggressive commitment to building out the Teradata Unified Data Architecture™," said Scott Gnau, president, Teradata Labs. "Teradata Enterprise Access for Hadoop empowers organizations to dig deeply into files and data residing in Hadoop and combine the data with production business data for analyses – and action."

Data scientists, business analysts, enterprise architects, developers, and IT managers are eager to find ways to maximize the value of all their data assets. They are seeking an effective means to refine the raw data stored in Hadoop and combine the intelligence with production business data. However, Hadoop has presented the industry with challenges related to security, standards, and a shortage of talented data scientists. The deployment of the Teradata Enterprise Access for Hadoop will enable data scientists to be set free from application development to work on high-value activities. In addition, data scientists can gain a better understanding of the lineage of the data to determine its reliability and accuracy.
