Teradata Aster Discovery Platform
The Right Deployment Option for You
Your organization faces massive data growth thanks to the explosion of data sources that provide “multi-structured” data – data that often does not fit readily into established schemas and requires careful exploration before your organization can use it to drive decisions. To deal with the explosion of multi-structured data, data scientists and business analysts demand new types of advanced analytic capabilities as they seek to make sense of, and glean insights from, these new data sources.
But big data problems are not uniform across organizations. So why should you be squeezed into a uniform solution?
Whether you are at a web company just getting your analytics infrastructure off the ground or a Fortune 1000 enterprise struggling to make sense of new multi-structured data, Teradata Aster Discovery Platform lets you choose the type of deployment to meet your needs.
