Many organizations are migrating their reporting and analytics systems away from the traditional on-premises implementation in favor of a cloud-based data warehouse environment.
However, it can be challenging to decide on the best approach; there are risks in attempting to migrate all systems at once. You can mitigate those risks by planning incremental stages of modernization and migration.
Adopting this approach means you will have to juggle supporting a pool of existing legacy applications with the design, development, and implementation of newer applications deployed across one or more cloud environments as well as navigating the on-premises/cloud boundaries.
The main challenge is the complexity of this hybrid environment. This checklist report explores the sources of complexity and suggests steps for simplifying the management of a hybrid cloud data warehouse.
