Changes in the way that today’s business transpires have slowly been cutting away at the ability to meet fully the needs of data consumers. At some point, those who manage the data warehouse will hit a threshold or boiling point that will make modernization mandatory.
The tipping point for many organizations revolves around a desire to improve time-consuming advanced analytics, scale up to handle more data, deliver analytics faster, and lower overall costs. In this Webinar, TDWI’s research director for data management, Philip Russom, discusses the five factors that may be the tipping point for the decision to modernize your data warehouse.
The good news that modernization is not only a chance to increase speeds and feeds in your data warehouse environment, but it is also a golden opportunity to rethink its economics and save money in areas such as storage, licenses, maintenance, CPUs, upgrades, and administration.
You will learn:
- Leading business and technology trends that are driving change in data warehouses and related systems
- Successful strategies for modernizing an existing data warehouse program and its data platforms
- The role of new data platform types in modernizing data warehouse environments: columnar databases, appliances, NoSQL, Hadoop, databases built for data warehousing and analytics, and more
