TDWI Speaker: Dr. Barry Devlin, 9sight Consulting
Date: Thursday, April 16, 2015
Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET
While the ongoing work of delivering business value through daily decision making still continues through business intelligence and data warehousing efforts, a quiet but conspicuous evolution has occurred in the ease with which these projects proceed. Data warehouse automation (DWA) has spurred that evolution.
Join data warehouse pioneer Dr. Barry Devlin to explore three key ways in which DWA changes the design, development, and maintenance of data warehouses and analytic systems. Devlin offers a business and IT rationale for adopting DWA and shows its benefits across very different business types and sizes.
Devlin will be joined by WhereScape President Mark Budzinski, who will provide DWA case studies from Tesco, Union Bank, and West Virginia Network.
Attendees will learn:
- How automation addresses the old conundrum of delivering consistent, quality data quickly enough for modern business needs
- How streamlining the overall process provides a single repository of metadata and integrated tooling to speed up and simplify development
- How business and IT can truly collaborate in delivering business solutions
