Lidl adopts next-generation data warehouse

By Retail Technology | Friday February 22 2013

Enhanced analytics platform will allow retail to analyse huge amounts of data more effectively and provide meaningful insights for thousands of business users

Retail grocer Lidl has revealed it is upgrading its existing enterprise data warehouse (EDW), renewing its commitment to provider Teradata by using Teradata Virtual Storage (TVS) and Teradata Database 13.1.

The data warehouse provider made the announcement this week at the EuroCIS 2013 retail technology trade fair held in Düsseldorf, Germany from 19 to 21 February. 

While the retailer itself did not comment on the announcement, Hermann Wimmer, Teradata International president, stated: “Lidl has a clear roadmap to move forward with a more active approach to data warehousing.”

 

Proactive approach to data analytics

 

The IT vendor said Lidl would extend its EDW by implementing several Teradata Active EDW 6680 platforms, with solid state disks. This investment, alongside conventional hard disk storage and TVS, which automatically tracks the usage of data to migrate it to the appropriate storage type, will provide enhanced in-memory performance to the retailer. Lidl will also implement several Teradata Warehouse Appliance 2650 platforms with up to 59 terabytes (TB) of uncompressed user data per cabinet to extend its Quality System.

Using Teradata Viewpoint, database administrators at Lidl will monitor and usage of the data warehouse ecosystem, while the retail will work with the provider’s professional services division to support the systems roll out, which also includes Teradata Backup and Restore.
