Why teradata is so difficult to use?

Hi All,

I'm new to teradata and started learning. I have downloaded Teradata 14 and VMWare workstation. Its been 2 days, i'm struggling to use it. I do not find enough help on how to configure it, and if any issue comes, how to resolve it.

I also downloaded Teradata 13, but then SQL assistant is not available for it, which help me to erite SQLs.

I'm done with it. Can anyone help me?

There is a Cloud computing topic area here on DevEx.

You can post there and also search that topic area for information alreay posted. It will work easily.

I have both 14.10 and 15 running now.

I'd advise you to stick withy 14.10 or above , just to be current.

I would suggest posting this to the Database forum as Teradata DB Express is discussed there.

Re: Why teradata is so difficult to use?

The descripton makes me think otherwise

 

 

The Cloud Computing forum is dedicated to topics and products related to the Teradata Enterprise Analytics Cloud™, such as Teradata Express for VMware and Amazon EC2 and Agile Analytics. Or just post your thoughts and comments about Cloud computing and how it relates to Data Warehousing in general.                   hide recentshow recent

Asagpariya,

You are not alone. Generally speaking, anything new is a bit difficult. Enough help is there, much more than what you require, say, this link:

http://developer.teradata.com/database/articles/new-teradata-express-14-10-versions-available

Inside this link you can see :

http://developer.teradata.com/database/articles/teradata-express-14-0-for-vmware-now-available too.

https://downloads.teradata.com/download/tools/teradata-tools-and-utilities-windows-installation-pack...

It is better to read the instructions before installing anything.

Teradata express has staged to work on vmware, which shows that it is sophisticated. Unlike other small shops  or DBs or tools or Technologies,  just download ,  drive and dump.

Cheers,
