Tesco is enhancing its data platform to drive its analytics and data at an enterprise-wide scale.
The supermarket giant is expanding its ongoing relationship with cloud-based analytics provider Teradata by leveraging leveraging its multi-cloud data platform for enterprise analytics, which it calls Vantage.
Vantage gives the UK’s leading grocer the flexibility to take advantage of some of Teradata’s latest technologies through the platform’s integration with popular third-party tools and analytic languages.
This means that users are able to access and dissect all of their data without having to learn a new language or tool.
Teradata also enables simplification of ecosystems by unifying analytics, data lakes and data warehouses.
“It has been a real partnership helping Tesco realize its vision of being an innovative and agile company that can leverage the power of a proven data analytics platform,” Teradata regional sales manager Magnus Palmaer said.
Teradata claim that enterprise-scale companies such as Tesco can eliminate silos (a collection of data held by one group that is not easily or fully accessible by other groups in the same organisation) and cost-effectively query all their data.
The news comes just as Tesco, amongst its rivals, its about to suffer more inventory shortages due to a lack of carbon dioxide.
CO2 is used by manufacturers of fizzy drinks and the meat industry and is on the brink of massive shortages as a result of soaring energy prices.
