"Joining Teradata at this point in its journey is a great evolution for me and my curiosity for the way technology is actively improving communities and economies," said Budge.
"This new chapter excites me because I've worked with Teradata as both a partner and a competitor and I've seen how it's deep heritage in data – and ability to handle data analytics at a scale no one else can – enables it to deliver quite incredible outcomes for local businesses and governments. I now get to be part of how we continue to do that in the future."
