How we do it

Teradata's approach to Smart Data Management is to establish, develop, and connect data management capabilities across a smart city. Our philosophy is that Smart Data Management enables:

  • The integration of data from sensors, other automated sources, and additional city data into a single platform as a coherent data stream
  • Automated ingestion of multiple data sources into a centralized repository or data lake that allows data to be shared and analyzed
  • The ability to conduct advanced, multi-genre analytics on combined data sets
  • Sharing data under a management regime that controls the level of data access for each user
  • An analytic sharing mechanism that allows all users to share analytics that have been predefined and created while operating the Smart Data Management system
  • The capability to value both raw data and processed information by supporting a data market approach
