Publix Grows BI Capacity with Data Warehouse Expansion
Publix Super Markets Inc., the country's largest employee-owned supermarket chain, has expanded its Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse to accommodate growth and more complex analytics. The upgrade moves the data warehouse functionality beyond traditional strategic analysis and into tactical operational intelligence for smarter, faster merchandising and marketing decisions and insight.
The expansion includes the latest Teradata Active Enterprise Data Warehouse platform, database software and services. Publix expects this move to enhance its ability to leverage its data regardless of type -- to do more for business performance. The new platform enables quicker reaction and response to changing business conditions and consumer behavior.
