Capgemini Receives Teradata Partner Impact Award for Innovation

| News alert
Paris, 25 November 2010 – Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology, and outsourcing services, announced that it has received the Teradata Partner Impact Award for Innovation for the second year in a row at the Teradata Partners User Group Conference in San Diego.

Through these awards, Teradata Corporation, the global leader in enterprise data warehousing, recognizes organizations whose contributions have a profound impact on Teradata’s success in the past year and who have collaborated with Teradata to tightly align companies and increase joint business activities. Capgemini received the award as recognition of its work in the field of Smart Analytics for utilities.

Collaboratively developed by Capgemini, Teradata and SAP, Smart Analytics provides analytical reporting through an integrated platform, accelerating the deployment of business intelligence. This helps utilities gain the most value from complex data generated within organizations and exploit new streams of data generated by Smart Grid and AMI (Automated Metering Infrastructure). The solution is expected to speed up the delivery of analytic portals by accelerating the development process for requirements definition, data modeling and related business logic and is expected to reduce overall cost and risk by leveraging partner alliances. Smart Analytics also seeks to use new sources of renewable energy and empowers customers to become “active” participants in the energy supply chain by managing their own energy consumption, helping to save energy and cut costs.

Jeff Deyerle, Vice President at Capgemini who accepted the award on behalf of Capgemini said: “Innovation is key to business – without it you lose your competitiveness and lose sight of the market. But with it you can drive new solutions and adapt to business trends, to ultimately help our clients face market challenges more successfully. We are proud to receive this award for innovation for the second year running. Teradata is one of our most strategic and important partners in the Business Information Market and their technology helps to empower organizations to create new ways of managing informational assets. We look forward to continuing to work with Teradata in the years to come.”

This year the Teradata Partner Impact Awards event was held on October 25 and was combined with the ComputerWorld Enterprise Intelligence Awards ceremony. The winners were announced on Monday 25 October during the 25th annual Teradata Partners User Group Conference & Expo at the San Diego Conference Center. The conference, organized by the Teradata Partners steering committee, is comprised of Teradata customers and is the world’s largest annual data warehousing and enterprise analytics educational conference and exposition.
