The Teradata Aster Discovery Portfolio delivers crucial insights


The Teradata Aster Discovery Platform, which includes the Discovery Portfolio and the Teradata Aster Database, significantly enhances an enterprise’s ability to perform the discovery process (data acquisition—data preparation—analysis—visualization). The Teradata Aster Discovery Platform was developed to ease the discovery of crucial business insights from all data types. With its powerful analytic applications coupled with minimal time and effort requirements, it provides the discovery insights needed for sophisticated companies today.

This paper explores the Teradata Aster Discovery Portfolio--a complete solution that powers interactive applications to drive insights that strongly impact and enterprise’s strategic and tactical decisions. It helps C-level executives, business managers, IT managers, data scientists, statisticians, and business analysts to discover and operationalize breakthrough business insights to:


  • Implement process refinements and/or new services and other activities that increase customer satisfaction.
  • Inculcate a data-driven ethos in which hard evidence is used to make key strategic decisions (e.g., pricing).
Minimize risk and capitalize on emerging market trends by making decisions proactively
