LAS VEGAS: Data warehousing giant Teradata Corp has been on a roll a year after leaving NCR Corp.

It has been rolling out more products and services in the past 12 months than it ever did when it was still under NCR, said chief executive officer Mike Koehler.

“With the spin-off from NCR, we have been able to set our own direction and control our own destiny,” Koehler said in his keynote address at the annual Teradata Partners conference recently. “We have also been able to operate with greater speed and focus and innovate better and faster.”

The company, which has a presence in more than 60 countries, introduced three new products and services last week alone.

“This is a significant release,” Koehler said in announcing the release of Teradata 13 at the conference.

Although competition in the warehousing industry was building up, the company was not worried.

Chief technology officer Stephen Brobst said a lot of people would ask whether he was worried about the new competition.

“Absolutely not! I’d be worried if they weren’t coming in,” Brobst said. “If you’re in an industry where people are leaving and not coming in, that’s when you’ve got a problem. Competition is good.”
