    Ventana Research Evaluates Company Case Studies, Names Finalists and

    DAYTON, OHIO, November 6 /CNW/ - Teradata Corporation (NYSE:  TDC), the
global leader in enterprise data warehousing, announced that RBC Financial
Group (Canada) was named a winner, with Teradata, in the Ventana Research 2007
Performance Management Leadership Awards program. The program recognizes
organizations that have demonstrated leadership in orchestrating people,
processes, information and technology for optimal business impact.

    RBC Financial Group was named the Finance Performance Leadership Award
winner, using a Teradata Warehouse(R) in its successful initiative to build an
extensible, scalable Basel II compliance solution. RBC augmented a series of
key data management strategies consistent with Basel II requirements, ensuring
effective management of Basel II data throughout its lifecycle, from
architecture to capture. These strategies - which include data quality, data
integration, data architecture and metadata management - ensure compliance
while keeping costs to a minimum.

    Among other business benefits, this solution allowed RBC to avoid
millions of dollars in standards and data management process costs, and will
improve the bank's management of risk and regulatory capital reserves. RBC has
been a Teradata solutions customer for more than a decade, and has leveraged
Teradata solutions to become a globally recognized leader in the enterprise
data warehousing and data management space.

    NCR Corporation, recognized as a finalist in the Ventana Research
category Operational Performance Leadership, uses a Teradata Warehouse for
operational and financial management.

    "The Performance Management Leadership Awards highlight companies that
exemplify leadership and show the value of successfully adopting best
practices to improve performance," said Mark Smith, chief executive officer,
Ventana Research. "The nominations this year were phenomenal. These
organizations in particular are to be congratulated for aligning business and
IT to accelerate growth and improve their competitiveness."

    "We congratulate RBC Financial Group and NCR for their recognized best
practices in financial, business, and IT performance management," said Jeff
Lovett, director of Teradata Finance and Performance Management solutions
marketing. "The fact that Teradata customers continue to be recognized as
award winners and finalists in this and other award programs speaks volumes
about the kind of company that chooses Teradata."
