Deutsche Telecom In Deal With IBM For Huge Customer Data Warehouse

German telecommunications services company Deutsche Telekom is assembling what may be the world's largest data warehouse system, under a deal announced today with IBM. When complete, the warehouse will contain up to 100 terabytes of customer data, and call records and will be used for customer-relationship management applications, according to IBM.

The data warehouse will be built by T-Nova, Deutsche Telekom's systems integration subsidiary, using IBM's RS/6000 SP parallel-processing servers and DB2 Universal Database software. An initial phase of the project taking the data warehouse to 25 terabytes is slated for completion by the third quarter of 2000, and Deutsche Telekom hopes to complete the entire 100-terabyte system within 18 months. The cost of the project was not disclosed.

Once completed, the system will be operated by DeTeCSM, Deutsche Telekom's IT services subsidiary. Only the largest data warehouses have broken into the multiterabyte range. Earlier this year, First Union Bank announced a plan to expand its customer data warehouse to 27 terabytes by early 2000.
