The resources you need

Welcome to the Teradata University Network, your world-class teaching and learning resource. The exploding demand for analytics professionals is fueled in part by companies’ increased focus on data-driven decision-making to grapple with the fast pace of change in the business world, and easier access to previously untapped data sources such as weblogs, social media interactions and sensors. TUN's goal is to train students to be breakthrough thinkers and doers who use data to create business value. Here you can find materials for your data warehousing, DSS/BI or database class, access knowledge and training materials from subject matter experts and connect with colleagues in the academic and business communities. Members have access to a variety of resources, including articles, assignments, book chapters, case studies, PowerPoint presentations, research reports, course syllabi and web seminars that are all provided at no cost.


"Clearly the challenges of preparing tomorrow's workforce are mounting. We see it in the expansion of Teradata University Network. More than 500 faculty from 176 new universities joined this year. We're now supporting more than 1,700 schools around the world in 98 countries. If you are not a member, we invite you to register today."

For your classes and your career

The exploding demand for analytics professionals is fueled in part by companies’ increased focus on data-driven decision-making to grapple with the fast pace of change in the business world, and easier access to previously untapped data sources such as weblogs, social media interactions and sensors. Teradata University Network provides students access to software, assignments, case studies, articles, readings and other materials. Our intent is to build an analytic talent pipeline that Teradata and our customers can access to meet their critical need for skilled analytics professionals. On TUN students can access free online training to help them prepare to become skilled analytics employees. This site makes it easy for you to learn new skills, complete assigned homework, research topics and browse openings at Teradata and its customers. Contact your professor for the password (which changes annually) to log in and register.


"As professors, we’re concerned that our students graduate with not only the technical knowledge they need to be analytics professionals, but also the business understanding to put that knowledge to use. Certification is an important approach to help align what is taught in academe with what is needed by industry."
