This session will include a moderated Q&A featuring questions from the live audience.

Our increasingly digital and real-time enterprises need modern—often cloud-based or hybrid—data architectures that support both rapid innovation and efficient operation across the business.

The cloud has made it much easier and faster to make data available online, but now many executives are struggling with a new phenomenon where data warehouse sponsors suddenly face large and unpredictable monthly bills.

There is a way to realize the full promise and agility of cloud-based data warehousing while successfully dealing with cost. First, you can select the platform for your next major workload with a process that takes total cost of operation into account. Second, you can align your data architecture with major cost drivers. Third, you can systematically manage total cost as you move through the stages of implementation and operation. Cloud data warehouse platforms vary significantly in their ability to support such efforts.

This presentation will discuss these challenges and outline the strategies needed to deal with them while aligning cost with business value.
