Boeing Autometric, Teradata to Enhance Business Intelligence Gathering.

Business Editors & Aerospace Writers


Data management software with geospatial capability, once used primarily for military operations, is now commercially available from Boeing Autometric and supported by the Teradata(R) data warehouse.

The software called Spatial Query Server(TM), or SQS, was developed by Boeing Autometric, a unit of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems, part of The Boeing Co. (NYSE:BA).

With a wide range of applications, SQS leverages the power of the Teradata enterprise data warehouse, enabling users to gather and analyze data cost effectively in order to make business decisions that will increase revenue, reduce expenses, or identify new business growth opportunities. SQS Version 4.0 is available now and will be compatible with future Teradata software releases.

"When SQS is coupled with the Teradata enterprise data warehouse, executives can uncover new clues about their customers by discovering the 'where' using geospatial analysis," said Vickie Farrell, vice president, Teradata warehouse marketing. Teradata is a division of NCR Corp. (NYSE:NCR).

In a typical operational scenario, SQS queries a Teradata data warehouse containing aerial and satellite imagery, along with business and referenced geographical data, and then, using the Teradata Database analytics, presents an accurate picture of the geospatial distribution of the data, an essential component for business analysis. When used in conjunction with Boeing Autometric's visualization products, roads, rivers, streets and traffic patterns, along with other elements, can be graphically depicted.

"The data retrieved and presented by SQS has far-reaching applications in the commercial market," said Tony Moraco, deputy general manager of Boeing Autometric. "For a large commercial airliner looking to better serve its frequent flyer base, a bank seeking to install additional automated teller machines, or a large retailer investigating consumer behavioral patterns, SQS is a fundamental tool that can lead to a speedy, informed decision.

"Retrieval speed of large and complex information, reduced decision-making cycle time, and the time and cost savings possible by leveraging critical data elements for business intelligence are key advantages of SQS."
