Carrefour Confirms BI Analytics Move

Carrefour, the world's second-largest retailer, on Monday (Oct. 13) confirmed that it was awarding a substantial piece of business intelligence analysis business to Teradata.

A very brief statement didn't reveal any details, other than a self-serving quote from Teradata. "Carrefour is taking a dramatic step forward in consolidating their data infrastructure to better compete on analytics and get quick, precise answers to complex business questions," said Eric Joulié, vice president Western Europe and president of Teradata France.
