American Eagle Outfitters is hoping for a new view on its business when it consolidates information from several independent IBM and Oracle databases into its first enterprise-wide data warehouse, implemented by Teradata, a division of NCR Corporation. "The Teradata warehouse will give us a better understanding of our business by allowing us to go to one central location to analyse trends in sales and inventory," said Ken Watts, vice president of information services and chief information officer at AE.
