Teradata Research and Development Achieves Elite Global Status


Customers benefit from access to the best data warehouse technology

SAN DIEGO, California — Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC) today announced that its global research and development group has achieved the elite Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) Maturity Level 3 rating, which is based on the rigorous criteria, version 1.2, developed by the Software Engineering Institute, a part of Carnegie Mellon University.

The CMMI Maturity Level 3 rating places Teradata among a select group of companies. Approximately 5 percent of all CMMI appraisals conducted worldwide on technology companies resulted in a Maturity Level 3 rating when the complex Integrated Product and Process Development (IPPD) is included. The IPPD component focuses on the capability of cross-functional teams working in multiple global locations.

“The rigorous appraisal of 18 important areas included the entire Teradata research and development organization worldwide, which our competitors have not yet matched. We are proud of this significant achievement by our global team,” said Scott Gnau, chief development officer, Teradata Corporation. “We are driven to achieve a standard of excellence in developing our data warehouse technology. This translates into proven technology which provides Teradata customers the ability to infuse intelligence into their enterprises, making them more competitive.”

“The CMMI appraisal is the global gold standard for measuring and ranking the effectiveness of business processes. Teradata Research & Development business processes and practices stand out as leaders in their respective industry,” said Don Steel, Ph.D., independent CMMI lead appraiser. “This worldwide organizational appraisal was a significant achievement. Companies with effective business practices can better serve their customers.”

The CMMI appraisal utilizes best practices in the industry to address development and maintenance activities that cover the conception, development, delivery and maintenance of hardware, software and customer services. Developed in 2003, the goal of CMMI appraisals is to measure and formally rate the maturity of business and governmental practices.
