United to Install Multi-Terabyte Enterprise Intelligence Solution

Regional independent United Supermarkets plans to deploy a new data warehouse system to meet the growing and comprehensive enterprise information requirements of the chain.

The retailer is deploying a multiple-terabyte Data Warehouse Appliance from Dayton, Ohio-based Teradata with the Retail Decisions Enterprise Suite, the Retail Logical Data Model and Teradata Professional Services.

“We’re [using] Teradata’s retail expertise, professional consulting services and its ability to deliver a system for our business and technology requirements,” said Chris St. Clair, CIO at Lubbock, Texas-based United. “We increasingly rely on detailed and predictive insight to be successful — and the power of Teradata’s enterprise-class analytics has come at just the right time for our business.”

The grocer will use the Teradata system to integrate and centralize the rapid flow of complex business information collected from across the organization and its thousands of sources and touchpoints. The Teradata system will be used for advanced business analysis of detail data, directly aimed at providing new insight for category management and marketing decision-making.

According to Teradata, retailers using its enterprise warehouse solutions include 70 percent of the top 20 retailers in the world, including the world’s largest retailer, plus the largest retail chains based in France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Other customers include Tesco, Winn-Dixie, Haggen, CVS and Lunds Food Holdings.

United Supermarkets operates 50 stores under three distinct formats: United Supermarkets, Market Street and Amigos United.
