    Welcome to the ‘Analytics of Everything’ 

    Consumers are constantly switching brands, forcing companies to find new ways to keep existing customers, win back old ones and appeal to new ones.

    We live in hyper-connected world. Billions of “things,” including people, businesses, machines and sensors, are interacting and creating new types of data at volumes never seen before. The Internet of Things (IoT) presents an enormous opportunity to integrate and analyze data from a diverse range of sources.

    Analytics is what gives the IoT meaning. The “Analytics of Everything” (AoE) delivers actionable insights to businesses on any area of interest at the most granular levels. These insights have the potential to disrupt and transform products, services, processes and even entire supply chains and industries.

    As the latest issue of Teradata Magazine points out, the barrier to turning so much data into value is that companies are not leveraging the information that’s available to them. In fact, some organizations are using just 1% of their data. In this issue, you’ll find out:

    This issue also features business case studies, thought leadership from today’s industry influencers and innovative technologies that can give businesses a strategic advantage. Download our free app to read it on your iPhone and iPad.

    Welcome to Big Data City 

    You could call Nashville the “city of many names”. It has been given numerous different ones in the course of its history – and they all sound like titles for the city’s feats in many fields: Nashville is called “Songwriting Capital of the World” for having been home to famous musicians for two centuries, or “Athens of the South” for its density of higher education institutions, to name only a two. Indeed, Nashville is an important hub, especially for the music, healthcare and publishing industries. All names account for a thriving economy – and I’m sure they’ve contributed to Nashville’s 2011 Forbes magazine ranking as third best positioned city “to grow and prosper in the coming decade”.

    And you bet Nashville does! From October 19 to 23, Tennessee’s capital will host the Teradata Partners Conference. I can tell you, I am really looking forward to these intense data-driven days. And what’s best for me, compared to this year’s Teradata Universe in Prague, will have more time to sit back and enjoy, listen to my esteemed colleagues and take in all the exciting news, stories and ideas, combined with personal meetings and – if I have some time to spare – some cultural impressions of Nashville.

    Following another of its famous nicknames, “Music City”, I’m inclined to now call our host location “Big Data City”, and be this only for a week. Already being a real “Brain Magnet” (according, again, to Forbes magazine), Nashville will be the Mecca of big data and data analytics, bringing together the cream of the crop of business analysts and data scientists from all around the globe.

    Knowing how to incentivize talented spirits and to spark innovation, Dr. Peter H. Diamandis, Chairman and CEO of the X Prize foundation, will give his keynote speech on Monday. Diamandis, co-founder of the Singularity University along with Dr. Ray Kurzweil, is known as “one of the best speakers ever” amongst numerous CEO-level audiences. So you’ll be in for a rhetorical treat! In his keynote, the innovation expert will focus on how technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics, and biotechnology will affect industries and society in the future – and how these must adapt to evolve.

    Speaking of change: we are “living in interesting times”, as the Chinese put it. Every area of our lives, be it business, finance, or our own homes (just think of the much cited Internet of Things) are increasingly impacted by data – vast amounts of them. They must be analyzed in order to keep pace with a rapidly changing world. Looking at the huge number of 200 plus business, technical and big data sessions scheduled for next week, I think this “credo” of the PARTNERS conference has already been adopted by several industries. Take healthcare, for example: as a top regional employer this industry not only secures the bread and butter of some 20,000 Nashvillians; it also innovates with big data on many levels.

    Need some proof? Then listen to Nathan Spillers, data warehouse architect at Mayo Clinic, and Teradata’s big data architect Altan Khendup, as they explain how a big data platform based on a Teradata Appliance for Hadoop helped Mayo Clinic’s clinicians to gain insight into millions of medical records. Or learn about the benefits of Teradata Aster for the Life Sciences Industry from Jane Uyvova, Senior Solution Architect at Teradata. The platform, which analyzes new data sources and multi-structured data by embedding MapReduce technology, helps solve complex problems – from research and development to the commercialization of therapies.

    But let’s not skip the smaller local industries. Computer giant Dell, employing some 3,200 people in its Nashville facilities, will let you in on the secret of accelerating marketing initiatives with a Teradata Unified Data Architecture (UDA) framework. Dell’s Anand Lakshmanan and Bryan Popka from Teradata will dig deeper into the topic.

    Of course, this is only a tiny fraction of what is in stock at this year’s Teradata Partners Conference, and I will be sure to visit many more exciting industry sessions, as well as some of the other activities the Partners Conference has to offer. You can, for example, get an extra load of concentrated knowledge during the four Wednesday super track sessions on hot consumer, marketing, big data, and cyber security topics. Or participate in one of the interactive workshops and boost your experience with case scenarios from Teradata customers.

    A small recommendation for all of you who are just as curious a person as I am and never want to miss out on any big news: simply use the hashtag #tdpug to get tweets from other participants and be among the first to know about new products, projects and success stories. So, what are you waiting for? Get ready to roam Big Data City’s main forum – there’s plenty to explore.
