Many organizations understand the value of data warehousing but have built their data warehouses on a platform designed initially for on-line transaction processing (OLTP) and not decision support.
Eventually they discover that these platforms can’t handle the demand and workload in a growing and dynamic data warehousing environment. This limits business improvement and locks companies out of the real value that data warehousing can provide.
Oracle customers realize the limits of the Oracle platform for decision support. Although they’re likely satisfied with Oracle as their OLTP backbone, they’re considering moving to the Teradata database for decision support.
This paper profiles four of the more than 200 Oracle customers who have migrated to a Teradata solution. The companies profiled in this paper have achieved performance improvements, additional business benefits that justify the migration cost, and successful Teradata database integration within the Oracle OLTP environment.
