"The new Teradata multi-petabyte big data platform will help Sears lead customer based innovation through integrated retail and support our membership program, Shop Your Way Rewards," said Oliver Ratzesberger, VP information analytics and innovation at Sears Holdings. "By combining previously separated databases and data marts onto a single virtualized big data platform we eliminate the need to maintain multiple copies and data feeds, thereby reducing time to market as well as TCO."
