ATLANTA, May 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Ticketmaster has turned to Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC) to transform its global fan database into a source of rich business insights for Ticketmaster's clients. Called LiveAnalytics and offered by Live Nation Entertainment subsidiary Ticketmaster, the new effort will drive increased ticket sales for clients, generate high value sponsorships, and benchmark competitive performance across venues, teams, leagues, categories and geographies.
"Analysis of fan data is the keystone in our plan to help our clients connect with fans and to ultimately sell more tickets," said John Forese, senior vice president, LiveAnalytics. "With the detailed data analysis fueled by the Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance, our clients will be able to be more efficient in their fan acquisition and retention efforts, and to measure and benchmark their performance, no matter their category of live entertainment."
The new analytics service will run on a Teradata Data Warehouse Appliance. Teradata Professional Services will support Ticketmaster in building out the underlying architecture to expand and improve the use of its robust fan database.
"Given today's intense competition for a consumer's time and dollars, entertainment companies must build tight relationships with their customers. Using analytics to understand immediate consumer interests from detailed data about past preferences and choices is a critical step," said David Grant, industry solutions marketing vice president, Teradata Corporation.
