Teradata helps Brinker International move to the cloud
Brinker International has reinvested with Teradata, leveraging the Teradata Vantage platform—delivered as-a-service, on Amazon Web Services (AWS)—as the core of its data foundation to facilitate advanced analytics, machine learning, and data science across the organization.
Founded in 1975 and based in Texas, Brinker owns, operates, or franchises more than 1,600 restaurants under the names Chili's Grill & Bar and Maggiano's Little Italy. Over the past year, Brinker has been working to further increase its capabilities in advanced analytics and data science.
“As we looked for more flexible and cost-effective ways to manage and access our data, we evaluated quite a few cloud-native providers," said Pankaj Patra, senior vice president and chief information officer at Brinker International, which has been a Teradata customer for more than 2 decades. "After careful consideration, we decided the best course of action would be to migrate to Teradata Vantage in the cloud and take advantage of its as-a-service offerings to support our analytic goals.”
By integrating Vantage’s machine learning capabilities, Brinker can now apply advanced analytics and predictive modeling to its business processes, enabling more accurate sales forecasting, demand and traffic forecasting, team member management, recommendation engines for customers and more.
“Our collaboration with AWS and participation in the AWS Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Workload Migration Program has helped Brinker successfully move their mission-critical data infrastructure to the cloud," said Ashish Yajnik, vice president of Vantage Cloud at Teradata. "We look forward to expanding our relationship by powering their advanced analytics and data science capabilities through the scalable, clean and trusted data foundation that the Vantage platform provides.”
Teradata Vantage is a hybrid cloud data analytics software platform that enables ecosystem simplification by unifying analytics, data lakes, and data warehouses. With Vantage delivered as-a-service, enterprise-scale companies can eliminate silos and cost-effectively query all their data, all the time, regardless of where the data resides—in the cloud using low cost object stores, on multiple clouds, on-premises or anywhere in-between – to get a complete view of their business. And by combining Vantage with cloud services, Teradata enables customers to expand their cloud ecosystem with deep integration of cloud-specific, cloud-native services.
