The 4 Mega Trends Driving Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing
What’s driving change in data warehousing (DW) and business intelligence (BI)? There are obvious scalability issues, due to burgeoning data, reports, and user communities. Plus, end-users need more real-time and on-demand BI. For many organizations, integrating existing systems into DW/BI is a higher priority than putting in new ones. And the “do more with less” economy demands more BI at lower costs. Hence, most drivers of change in BI and DW concern four Mega-Trends: size, speed, interoperability, and economics.
What you will learn:
- The four Mega-Trends that drive most changes in BI and DW
- How individual Mega-Trends affect various layers of the BI/DW technology stack
- How BI organization and funding is affected by the Mega-Trends
- How to apply an understanding of the Mega-Trends to planning BI systems and addressing business requirements
