Historically, those who work in the world of advanced analytics and data mining have done their work in a separate environment that they control. This approach made sense in the days before Teradata Enterprise Data Warehouses made most, or all, of the needed data available in a scalable environment ...

Analysts today are moving more and more to an in-database architecture for as much of their work as possible. While this is a good thing if done correctly, it requires a tighter level of planning and integration to put analytics processes into production on a Teradata system. The benefits of the extra effort far outweigh the costs, however.

In this talk, we discuss how analytics teams can make full use of Teradata as they attempt to scale their efforts. We’ll cover the creation, maintenance and structure of Analytic Datasets, the management of models, how to configure Teradata to optimize performance, and policy & procedure considerations.

Note: This was a 2011 Teradata Partners Conference session, and is the basis for Bill Frank's book "Taming the Big Data Tidalwave".
