The Private Cloud – Your Next BI/DW Platform?


Webinar Abstract

Recent surveys run by TDWI show that BI professionals are beginning to embrace cloud computing specifically for business intelligence (BI) and data warehousing (DW).

For example, over the course of 2010, users familiar with cloud computing jumped from 52% to 75%. Those exploring cloud computing jumped from 26% to 49%. The percentage of organizations with a BI or DW implementation already deployed on a cloud inched up from 13% to 15%, which is pretty good given the newness of cloud. Most user organizations surveyed prefer a private cloud (53%) over a public one (7%).If cloud adoption continues to grow this way, a private cloud may soon be your next BI/DW platform.

Survey data aside, TDWI sees its Members and others deploying reporting platforms, analytic tools, data warehouses and other databases in clouds – and for good reason. The fluid allocation of virtualized server resources that’s typical of a cloud lends itself to analytic projects, which tend to ramp up quickly and conclude almost as suddenly. Furthermore, with cloud computing, DW personnel can spawn temporary “sandboxes” – which are analytic or departmental marts or similar databases – then reallocate those resources once users are done with a sandbox. As the Big Data managed by a DW continues to grow, capacity planning and tactical reactions to spikes in growth are greatly simplified by cloud computing.

You Will Learn:
  • The benefits of and barriers to implementing BI and DW platforms on a cloud
  • Prominent use cases for cloud-based BI and DW
  • Cloud’s role in successfully enabling analytics and Big Data, the two hottest growth areas in BI right now
