The company automates data prep and claims 25 times runtime improvement for SAS, SPSS, Fair Isaac and KXEN tools.

Data warehouse giant Teradata on Dec. 13 introduced a new suite of data-mining software for enterprises that it says significantly automates data preparation and accelerates performance of its partners' data-mining tools.

Teradata Warehouse Miner 5.0 lets users advance beyond simply describing what their customers did last quarter to predicting future buying behavior, a company spokesperson said.

"This innovative technology enables companies to convert information into insight, and insight into actions which support better, faster decisions," said Randy Lea, vice president for Dayton, Ohio-based Teradata's products and services.

Teradata Warehouse Miner 5.0 has been designed to optimize analytics when deployed in combination with SAS, SPSS, Fair Isaac Model Builder or KXEN data-mining tools, Lea said.

"The combination of the Teradata in-database performance with other vendors' data-mining tools can speed model development as much as two to three times faster and runtime of data-mining models up to 25 times faster," Lea said.

"This in-database performance is extremely valuable to our customers and partners, because they use it to gain more insight, through more analytic models, executed against more customers' data, across the organization in real time."
