Teradata Data Science Experience

This event will highlight real-world use cases where different analytic techniques are used to understand events and offer possible business actions to drive greater revenue. There will be a mixture of both conceptual learning as well as hands on execution of functions within the Teradata Analytics Platform arena. While all lab work will be done via Teradata Studio, there will be demos of executing the same processes via Jupyter, Python, or running R code.


Attendees will also create purpose-built analytic apps within the Teradata AppCenter framework where compelling visualizations will be generated. The Teradata Data Science Experience is finally rounded off with the ability to operationalize analytic insights in real time within the Teradata Analytics Platform.

Topics to be explored:

  • Data Prep, Ingest and Access: (Discussion and Examples)
  • Data model
  • Data wrangling and ingest
  • External File access techniques
  • Experience the Analytic Process: (Hands On and Demo)
  • Algorithm execution
  • Visualization
  • Insights operationalization
  • Advanced Analytic Algorithms Explored Within: (Hands On)
  • In-database functions
  • Machine learning analytic engine
  • Graph analytic engine

The Teradata Data Science Experiences are being held on Sunday, October 14, and Thursday, October 18. Please register for one of these days only. Attendees are required to bring their own device. Setup will be available at 8:00am PT and can take 5 minutes or up to 30 minutes depending on your individual device's configuration. Please arrive early to ensure all devices are up and running for a prompt 9:00am start-time. Breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided to all registered attendees.


Architects, Developers, DBAs and end users who want to know how the technology works behind the scenes will all benefit from this session. With a plethora of database products on the market and an emerging market of new players today, it is increasingly difficult to understand how any of them are differentiated. It is challenging for evaluators and decision makers to get below the marketing slides to understand the technical differences.

Discussion Points:

  • Key product requirements needed to support scalable SQL analytics
  • In-depth look at the Teradata SQL Engine architecture showcasing Teradata’s differentiation and response to these requirements
  • Teradata’s ability to deliver unlimited scalability in every dimension, high performance, and simple management
  • Requirements of modern integrated data management and access

The Teradata Database Architecture Overview lecture occurs Sunday from 9:00am-12:00pm.
