Teradata is creating a global IoT analytics unit staffed by “data scientists, data engineers and software designers”.

The unit will sit functionally within Teradata Labs, which has operations in the US, UK and India.

The team, according to Teradata, is “tasked with building new, cloud-based analytic solutions and services to simplify advanced analytics, data movement and database management for the Internet of Things.”

Teradata said that the unit would focus on creating customer solutions, such as early warning detection of machine issues and systems that could make pricing more dynamic.
