Agile Analytics: The Convergence of the Cloud, Open Source and Specialized Analytic Databases
New technologies often change the rules of the game, making it possible for BI teams to address business needs in new and creative ways. BI teams that understand how to harness the power of the cloud, open source, virtualization, and high-performance analytical databases can create new opportunities to serve the business while saving money and time. For example, the combination of these technologies will enable organizations to spawn analytical sandboxes on demand to help business people optimize their response to sudden market changes, such as a new competitor, wholesale shifts in pricing, natural disasters, and economic freefalls. They can also be used to offload expensive processing from overburdened data warehouses and avoid costly upgrades, or prototype new proof-of-concept BI applications without having to purchase and implement new data center infrastructures. This Webinar will provide an overview of these new data center technologies and describe how BI teams can exploit them for business advantage.
