Developers who work with Teradata have something to be very excited about! With our renewed focus on user experience at Teradata, we’re applying user-centered design (UCD) principles and conducting ethnographic research on several key personas, starting with developers.

Dark Mode: Fad, trend or something more?

2019 has absolutely been the year of Dark Mode. Some call it a fad or trend, while others praise it for increasing accessibility and reducing ocular strain. For us, Dark Mode is a bold statement proclaiming our love for developers.

Extensive user research with customers across the globe has informed the development of a suite of new developer applications and tools. This suite, dubbed “Vantage Developer,” is coming to Vantage in the near future.

Vantage Developer editor

Editing a query has never been easier!

In the new Vantage Developer editor, users can rapidly test queries and develop scripts right in the browser. Additionally, users can save and share those scripts with their co-workers, learn advanced functions with built-in documentation, compare revisions and much more.

API Catalog

Build custom solutions using an extensible RESTful API catalog

Developers and partners can seamlessly integrate and extend Vantage by using RESTful APIs to manage users and data, perform SQL queries, deploy containers, configure single-sign-on (SSO), send notifications, monitor logs, send system-wide notices and more.

Developers will be able to view parameters, submit a request, see responses in multiple formats, copy response headers and use code snippets for all popular languages (Java, Go, Python, Angular, as well as Curl).

Partners will be able to extend their products and services more easily with centralized API documentation.

Use Cases

To learn all about the powerful analytic features of Vantage, developers can access end-to-end use cases that exploit all of the capabilities, functions and best practices of Teradata.

Streamlined developer experience (DX)

In this concept, a developer seamlessly flows from a path analysis use case into the editor with a pre-populated SQL statement. From the editor, the developer can easily submit the query, immediately preview results and easily create a report to share insights with colleagues.

New developer site

Finally, I have the great pleasure of announcing an all new developer website! This new site is your one-stop shop to learn about all the developer features in Teradata Vantage with access to video tutorials, downloads, forums, documentation and the developer community.
