For the past three decades, the enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been firmly ensconced as the fundamental resource supporting corporate business intelligence and operational analytics, and the conventional on-premises data warehouse architecture has remained relatively static.
However, because of radical growth in data volumes and increasing data diversity, many organizations have begun to reevaluate their commitment to the traditional on-premises EDW and its ability to scale performance in proportion to exploding data volumes. Many organizations have begun to re-envision their overall data warehouse strategy, seeking to take advantage of the many benefits of the cloud, and have started migrating their data warehousing capabilities to the cloud.
As organizations increasingly desire to process and analyze exploding volumes of highly diverse data streaming at or near real time, cloud platform economics and increasingly sophisticated cloud-native technologies combine to provide on-demand, high-performance, scalable computing resources at a fraction of the cost of on-premises big iron.
This TDWI Insight Accelerator considers what it means to transition to a modernized reporting and analytics environment and provides concrete steps for migrating and modernizing the enterprise reporting, business intelligence, and analytics ecosystem to the cloud.
