The power unleashed from your data brings confidence to your organization and inspires leaders to think boldly and act decisively for the best decisions possible.

Company History

(1976). The concept of Teradata grew out of research at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and from the discussions of Citibank's advanced technology group. Caltech showed "how;" the bank showed "why." The ideas came together in the winter and spring of 1979. Founders worked "out of the box" to design a revolutionary database management system for parallel processing with multiple microprocessors, specifically for decision support. The microprocessors, like horses, were harnessed to pull a large load rather than relying on one horse to do all the work.

(1979) Teradata was incorporated on July 13, 1979, and started in a garage in Brentwood, Calif. The name Teradata symbolized the ability to manage terabytes (trillions of bytes) of data.

(2011) Today, our assets include: 

  • More than 8,000 associates in 42 countries
  • Strong diversified client base of over 1,200 customers worldwide and companies of all sizes
