Teradata Opti Awards Call for Entries

Teradata Opti Awards Call for Entries

Business analysts and data scientists get really pumped when data and analytics create those “aha” or even those “uh-oh” moments – especially when they lead to a phenomenal discovery, spark something truly innovative or provide an answer they have been searching for. But, far too often these analytical discoveries and achievements don’t receive the kinds of accolades they deserve.

Enter the Teradata Opti Awards.

Teradata’s exciting new Opti Awards – part of the Teradata Analytics Universe 2018 – recognize and reward these analytic rock stars with the bragging rights they deserve, along with some tangible and meaningful benefits for telling us their story and emerging as industry thought leaders.

Why “Opti,” you might ask? The name reflects both the new optics and optimization that our customers bring to their organizations using data and analytics. This year, we have four categories that capture these differentiating achievements: Amazing Analytics, Cloud Revolution, Relationship Voyager and Return on Innovation. Click here to learn more about each category.

Each of these awards will recognize innovation at the highest levels of the industry, highlighting leading-edge work that is driving better business outcomes. But, you can’t win if you don’t enter. Teradata customers should consider acting now and tell us about your new insights, opportunities created and optimum business outcomes you’ve realized for your department, division, company and leadership. Winners will receive a lot more than just bragging rights, including some pretty sweet prizes that include:

  • One complimentary registration for Teradata Analytics Universe (Oct. 14-18 in Las Vegas)
  • Award presented to the winners at the customer’s location, by Teradata leadership
  • One-week consulting engagement with a Think Big Analytics™ consultant, to further leverage your innovations and achievements
  • Recognition at Teradata Analytics Universe in Las Vegas
  • Invitation to an exclusive networking reception for winners and finalists at the conference
  • Opportunity to speak at a Teradata-sponsored event

Your entry will be evaluated by independent, industry-expert judges from around the world. Given Teradata’s world-class list of customers, we expect the competition to be stiff. For the finalists and winners, that will make victory even sweeter, with bragging rights good enough to be yelled from…

But you must hurry! The EXTENDED deadline to submit an entry to win a Teradata Opti Award is June 22, 2018. Our independent judges will score all entries on Aug. 1, with winners notified shortly after so they can pack their bags for Las Vegas!

Don’t miss your chance to be an analytics rock star.
