Teradata Corporation recently recognized Tableau as its "New Partner" of the year. Announced at its annual Partners conference this last week in Washington, DC, it's quite an honor especially coming from Teradata. Teradata (NYSE: TDC) is the world’s largest company solely focused on raising intelligence through data warehousing, data warehouse appliances, consulting services and enterprise analytics. Teradata is in more than 60 countries. We introduced Tableau connectivity to Tableau last year and we're happy to say that it's having a very strong market impact.

Their partner awards are intended to acknowledge those "organizations whose impact on Teradata’s economic and technological success has been visible and dramatic,” as Darryl McDonald, Teradata chief marketing officer, said. And as such, Tableau is in good company; other software vendors winners included Oracle, SAP, SAS, Microsoft and Informatica. Read more here.

Thank you, Teradata, for the recognition. It's great to work with a partner who also has such a strong focus on helping customers get more from their data and business intelligence analytics.
