Teradata has also launched subscription-based transactions available for its clients in its bid to increase sales revenue. "We have made buying process easier for clients. Under the subscription model, now enterprises don't have to do upfront investment as they can get access to our products and services on subscription basis," Das added.

The California-headquartered company had reported a revenue of $526 million during the September quarter of this year. Subscription-based transactions accounted for 82 per cent of its bookings mix during the quarter. Net income of the firm stood at $18 million during this period.
