A new Teradata Data Warehouse from Teradata Corporation, complemented by the Informatica Platform from Informatica Corporation, will now house and integrate critical business data for Columbia Sportswear Company.

Columbia purchased the Teradata Database and Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance to gain greater business insights and analysis by consolidating data from multiple existing platforms. Teradata business partner Informatica will provide the data integration technology to connect Columbia's source systems to the new Teradata system.

“Columbia Sportswear understands the importance of managing data as a strategic asset. With the Informatica Platform, Columbia will be able to improve its supply chain efficiency by fully leveraging the Teradata warehouse. Informatica technology alongside Teradata transforms the way businesses work – giving all stakeholders timely access to trustworthy, accurate data,” said Ivan Chong, executive vice president, Data Quality Product Division, Informatica.

Headquartered in Portland, Ore., Columbia Sportswear Company is a leading innovator in the global outdoor apparel, footwear, accessories and equipment markets. The global nature of the company's supply chain and customer base make it a prime target to benefit from implementing a system to consolidate its global data.

“By consolidating into one database data that was previously stored in multiple areas within the company, data are consistent. Consistency in information is key for employees to trust Columbia Sportswear information assets,” Ted Senemar, vice president of mid-market, Americas region, Teradata Corporation, said. “Our new Platform Family price points are bringing the power of Teradata to companies of all sizes.”
