Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
QuantiSense, the leading provider of retail analytics and decision orchestration solutions, today announced its partnership with Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC). As a result of this partnership and certified integration, retailers will benefit from the rapid and focused implementation of the QuantiSense Decision Orchestration Platform™ which fits seamlessly into Teradata’s scalable, enterprise-wide retail solution.
The QuantiSense Decision Orchestration Platform™ version 6 has been tested and certified to work with all currently supported versions of the Teradata Database. The QuantiSense solution includes executive dashboards and personalized Retail Scorebooks™ designed to deliver intuitive business graphics — via desktop or mobile access — that empower users to quickly identify trends and highlight problems, accelerating the decision-making process. Then Retail Playbooks™ ensure consistent use of best practices for team members ranging from merchandising executives, buyers, allocators and planners to store operations.
Retail industry leaders such as The Gap, Hudson’s Bay and Hallmark Cards are already using the combined QuantiSense and Teradata solutions. By leveraging these complementary solutions, retailers enjoy an extremely rapid return on investment -- including boosting sales and operating margins, avoiding stockouts, improving inventory productivity and even postponing the need for markdowns.
By implementing the QuantiSense Decision Orchestration Platform on the Teradata platform family, retailers of all sizes can jumpstart their business intelligence initiatives around merchandising and store operations. Teradata provides the performance and flexibility retailers need out of the box to support their analytical needs, while QuantiSense provides an off-the-shelf physical data model and rapid implementation process that allows them to realize value from their data warehouse in as little as 60 days. And by using the Teradata Retail Logical Data Model (RLDM) they can extend the scope of the integrated data warehouse to grow their analytical capabilities into virtually any aspect of their business, including other subject areas such as customer, finance and logistics.
The Teradata RLDM also provides a foundation for other solutions including the Aprimo Relationship Management and Demand Chain Management applications. QuantiSense and Teradata are exploring ways to use these complimentary solutions to provide both operational support and exception analysis reporting.
“Combining the QuantiSense and Teradata solutions gives retailers the best of both worlds – a quick return on investment in key aspects of their business with the power to expand the data warehouse across their entire operation,” said Tim Simmons, vice president retail industry marketing, Teradata. “This unique combination of powerful retail analytics and the most scalable platform family available will appeal to companies that want to expand their analysis and to those who want to stand up an integrated data warehouse very quickly.”
“We have been working side by side with Teradata for several years, so our joint customers have already seen the value of our off the shelf retail solutions paired with highly scalable Teradata platforms to make more profitable merchandising and store ops decisions,” added Jeff Buck, CEO, QuantiSense. “The combination of our solutions provides retailers of all sizes with powerful analytics, and we look forward to moving our partnership with Teradata to a new level,” continued Buck.
