I would like to investigate possibilities of Teradata Visual Explain and I'm using Teradata Express Studio (v. 15.00) to connect our Teradata installation. To use the tool, I need Teradata Analyst Pack. Is the tool available for partners, and if yes, how can we get access to it?
Why does the link on the analyst tools page not work? Why is it not on the downloads page? This is lousy freaking support, and Teradata doesn't seem to care.
Some software (like the Analyst Pack) is only available for licensed sites and not via DevEx-download.
In fact most customer sites don't want/like/allow end users to install software on their own because they prefer to have the same version on all clients (supportability). Then all software is downloaded from the Teradata at Your Service-site (T@YS) and made available to end users.
So most of the downloads on this site are mainly for users without an actual TD system (and thus without access to T@YS).
You might simply ask your DBA for the latest TTU.
The Teradata Analyst Pack has been a subset of the TTU offering and something we had charged for in the past. The Analyst Pack was comprised of four offerings: Index Wizard, Stats Wizard, Visual Explain, and Teradata System Emulation Tool (TSET). Stats Wizard was discontinued when we introduced Auto-Stats within Teradata Database and visualized in Viewpoint. The other three offerings still exist and I'm pretty sure are all part of the general TTU download.
