Today’s BI environments have split personalities. They must support the production of routine reports and analyses used every day for decision-making by line-of-business employees, and yet, also enable data scientists and data crunchers to “freewheel” through the data in an unplanned, experimental fashion. What magic is this? How can implementers create a sustainable BI environment with these two seemingly contradictory purposes? Does one replace the other? What are the technological requirements for this new world?
This Webcast will unveil the extended data warehouse architecture (XDW), and demonstrate that it’s not magic—just a logical, well-thought-out addition (not replacement!) to the traditional data warehouse architecture so that each user’s requirements are easily supported.
You will learn:
- The need to extend a traditional data warehouse architecture with an investigative computing platform
- The differentiators of each component
- The types of BI and analyses performed in each component
- Things to consider when moving to the XDW architecture
