In an effort to make data mining easier, Teradata has launched a set of what it is calling Data Mining Accelerator Packages that combine its data mining software with specialized professional services. Teradata, a division of NCR Corp., today announced that it has developed three different packages to meet the needs of companies with various levels of data mining expertise. The packages combine its Teradata Warehouse Miner 3.1 software and its consulting services along with making use of the Teradata data warehouse, the company said. "It is a misconception that data mining must always be complicated, cumbersome and require a Ph.D.," said Vickie Farrell, vice president of Teradata warehouse marketing, in a statement. "The (packages) are designed to help businesses understand and use data mining to achieve tangible results, regardless of their level of expertise."
The entry-level package is called Exploration Package. It is designed to help businesses unfamiliar with data mining.
The mid-level package, called the Expansion Package, is a training program to help companies build further data mining competency and make the insights easy for business users to access. For those with experience, Teradata developed the Expert Package. It helps companies integrate data mining technology into the enterprise data warehouse and solve specific problems. Pricing for the Exploration and Expansion packages start at $20,000, plus the cost of travel, Farrell said. The Expert package begins at $5,000 for the first consultation, plus the cost of any database software a company might deploy.
