Whether you are under pressure to move to a cloud solution or choosing to embrace the cloud for your data warehouse modernization, the cloud has a role to play in your immediate future. This is true whether you are modernizing an existing warehouse or building a new one; whether your whole warehouse or just pieces of it will be deployed on the cloud.
Today the cloud is a well-established computing platform for data warehouses and related fields—as well as a preferred platform for new deployments. TDWI anticipates more warehouses on cloud-based data platforms, yet some data domains and components of the data warehouse architecture will linger on premises into the foreseeable future.
This TDWI Checklist Report drills into the business and technical requirements of the modern DW. The goal is to help user organizations understand the directions that new business goals are taking warehouses and therefore which modernizations are required to keep pace—plus how to prepare for successfully migrating data warehouses to the cloud.
