Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET
As the Software as a Service (SaaS) model for business applications deployed in the cloud has grown and matured to support many operational business functions, the hosted or cloud-based model has begun to spread to data warehousing and business intelligence. A number of service providers are offering a blend of configured data warehousing platforms coupled with managed services that effectively free the consumers to focus on data analysis instead of data warehouse management.
But what are the real implications of cloud-based data warehousing? How will this managed service truly impact those within and outside of the enterprise, especially as specialty cloud-based data marts start to appear? What kind of capabilities will be available? And importantly, how will this affect the organization from an architectural and change management perspective?
In this webinar, we will discuss the emerging motivations for adopting cloud-based data warehousing and business intelligence. We will weigh the advantages and disadvantages of cloud-based data warehousing, as well as speculate on conceptual information management models to support instantiation, population, and analysis services. Next, we will explore questions about the fundamental challenges for any cloud-based application such as security, regulatory compliance, and data protection. We will hear a case study on cloud-based data warehousing, followed by a panel discussion.
Attendees will learn:
- Adoption of cloud-based data warehousing and Business Intelligence
- Analytics in the cloud
- Data integration and architectural challenges
- Contrasting cloud-based and on-premises data warehousing
- Considerations for cloud DW/BI vendors
