Imagine using big data technologies to enrich and optimize your relational database (RDBMS) and data warehouse (DW) environments. It’s a popular idea, and it goes by many different names, including “data warehouse augmentation.” The goal is to enrich traditional decision support and data warehouse–driven applications with new and nontraditional kinds of information—things the DW wasn’t designed to manage. Big data technologies, such as the open source software (OSS) Hadoop framework, are also playing host to an emerging class of complex analytics. Working together, these technologies can optimize, complement, and enhance your DW.
