Dayton, Ohio -- Data warehousing and analytics company Teradata Corp. said Wednesday it has broadened its partnership with Walmart.
The agreement includes an upgrade and expansion of Walmart's data warehouse environment to provide next-generation capabilities. Taradata said its technology will offer an expected 50% reduction in floor space required and a 40% reduction in energy consumption.
The planned expansion includes a data warehouse technology refresh program, which will keep Walmart's data warehouse on the leading edge of technology adoption. The agreement also includes a research and development relationship to strengthen the company's competitive retail advantage.
"As this partnership is expanded, we will be able to leverage scalability, processing power, and storage capacity, along with software enhancements," said Jose Hernandez, Walmart's chief technology officer and senior VP infrastructure. "Consistent with our sustainability initiatives, this expansion will result in a significant reduction in our data center power and cooling footprint."
