Teradata said that its Think Big Analytics consulting group has joined the NVIDIA Service Delivery Partner program. NVIDIA GPUs are widely used in deep learning, artificial intelligence (AI) and accelerated analytics applications. As a program member, Think Big Analytics will help clients looking to scale their AI initiatives by working with NVIDIA to optimize deep learning for enterprise use and coordinating go-to-market strategies.
Think Big Analytics is one of the first large, global consultancies to join NVIDIA’s partner network. With its exclusive focus on data and analytics, Teradata will be collaborating with NVIDIA on solutions that drive impactful business outcomes in industries including banking and insurance, automotive, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, retail, media and entertainment, and travel and transportation.
“We’ve seen the business value created by applying deep learning algorithms enabled by NVIDIA GPUs,” said Atif Kureishy, Vice President of Emerging Practices at Think Big Analytics. “This partnership formalizes our use of NVIDIA-based technologies, giving our talented data scientists and engineers greater access to IP and expertise from NVIDIA, but also creating a positive feedback loop that will drive product innovation at both companies.”
Teradata consultants will have access to NVIDIA training materials, support resources and technology tools to ensure customers are successful with their AI solutions enabled by the NVIDIA AI computing platform.
“Most companies need to customize their AI efforts to meet their unique demands, but there’s currently a relatively small pool of AI talent,” said Craig Weinstein, Vice President of Partners Organization at NVIDIA. “We recommend that companies work with consulting partners like Teradata who have a vision for how AI will drive business outcomes as well as considerable experience using our GPUs to accelerate AI environments and achieve measurable results with deep learning and advanced analytics.”
