SAP IQ

Does data compression very well, produces query results very quickly, ability to scale up as data volume/size grow in an organization, row level versioning is in memory and hence the speed. It is a very stable product for large enterprises. More detailed documentation on how to use this product in the initial stages would be really welcome.

Teradata Vantage

Teradata is the premier analytic platform. If you need to enable real-time access to multiple terabytes/petabytes of your organization's data to help you make real-time decisions in a way that translates into real dollars in sales and strengthened customer relationships then there is no better choice. Teradata is NOT an OLTP appropriate database and it may not be the best place to process all your data but as far as enabling your Analytic enterprise Teradata is always going to provide the best ROI for medium and large enterprises and now with new cloud integration even small enterprises can have the advantages of Teradata that used to be only available to the larger enterprises.

SAP IQ

  • Inserting millions of rows of data takes seconds.
  • Aggregating billions of rows of data is insanely fast (compared to Oracle, Sybase, and SQL Server).

Teradata Vantage

  • Very capable enterprise data warehouse platform leveraging the MPP architecture. One of the leaders in the market in MPP space today
  • High performance data ingestion and query engine
  • Utilities like QueryGrid allows for data federation, BTEC and FastLoad etc allow for high performance data ingestion and processing
  • Ideally being used for ELT type data integration, with push down optimisation where complex logic is processed using the power of Teradata appliance than the ETL server

SAP IQ 10.0
Based on 1 answer
SAP IQ support is top-notch. I prefer starting all my SAP IQ support tickets with their Instant Messenger, where the majority of our issues are resolved. If it makes it to their ticketing system, they are very prompt at responding and very knowledgeable in the platform.

Alternatives Considered

SAP IQ

SAP IQ is perhaps an under-marketed product in the sense that it is able to scale up very well and perform much faster and more efficiently than other products such as Oracle - when we ran multiple large queries on both Sybase IQ and Oracle, we found that that results were much faster in Sybase IQ and this gave the confidence to go for this product.

Teradata Vantage

  • Works well with other Teradata tech stack.
  • We use Hadoop ecosystem for other domains and we can see the difference in complex reporting (that's where the $ come in).
  • We explored Oracle; however Oracle is not a great fit when you have other Teradata applications.

Return on Investment

SAP IQ

  • The ROI over a number of years has been good. Seeing as how we use it for billing, it has an obvious ROI to us.
  • As they have been modifying their licensing structure, it's been difficult to keep up and understand how they work.

Teradata Vantage

  • Excellent performance on reports
  • We were able to report on all the different large amounts of data across departments with the help of Teradata Enterprise Data Warehousing
