China Construction Bank has selected Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation, to provide an enterprise data warehouse solution across the bank's operations.
The first phase of the project will centralise all the bank's data across business functions and branches. Related applications such as customer relationship management and Teradata Value Analyser to analyse customer profitability will also be deployed.
After testing and evaluating several multinational vendors at the initial planning stage, the bank says it chose Teradata for its analytical power and high scalability of massively parallel-processing servers. The vendor was also chosen for the customisation of its solutions for the China market.
The China Construction Bank project is the third terabyte-class enterprise data warehousing project that Teradata is implementing in mainland China. Teradata has also helped Shanghai Securities Central Clearance and Registration Company and TravelSky Technology Limited in China.
