Certification requires comprehensive annual audits to confirm that companies can consistently meet program requirements.

"Teradata continues to demonstrate an outstanding ability to deliver the highest quality service and support to its customers," said Greg Coleman, vice president of strategic programs, Service Strategies. "As a result of an intense focus on service excellence, the organization exceeded SCP requirements and industry benchmarks by a wide margin in several areas evaluated during the audit."

Teradata's Global Support Center demonstrated outstanding performance by meeting or exceeding program requirements in nearly all of the 112 business practices defined by the SCP Support Standard. In addition, the organization's overall performance outpaced the global benchmark of SCP certified organizations by a significant margin. Specific areas of excellence noted during the audit included service delivery processes, service tools and technologies, employee development practices and the interface between the support and product development organizations.
