The 2020s are going to require a modern data warehouse to meet demanding new requirements for machine learning, data variety, scale, and real-time analytics—and this will often be implemented in part or in its entirety in the cloud.

In this course, you will learn about the major data warehouse platforms, their abilities to support the modern data warehouse, key architectural features, and what makes them different from one another. With a focus on data warehousing in the cloud, this course will help you understand why data warehouse platforms are scalable in different ways.

This course will give you the technical reasons why scaling up is sometimes easy and sometimes very hard—at a level that architects, strategists, and decision makers can understand. You need this understanding to choose the best platform for your cloud data warehouse or workload—and to avoid platform mistakes that can be catastrophic.
