When considering all the benefits that cloud computing has to offer, it may be tempting to rapidly move organizational data warehousing, reporting, and analytics systems to the cloud. There is wisdom in moving thoughtfully, though—evolving your analytics environment without a strategy increases the risk of failure.
A data strategy spans the data models, operational processes, storage configurations, system platforms, integration processes, and data accessibility. First and foremost, it is critical to understand the business expectations for providing actionable intelligence that informs business user decisions and ensuring that the cloud strategy is aligned with the business strategies. Second, data architects must be aware of the differences between on-premises data warehouse architectures and architectures that are designed for the cloud.
Join us for the first in a series of four webinars based on an upcoming TDWI e-book on modern data warehousing.
In this webinar, we discuss key aspects of an organization’s cloud-based data strategy, covering the data life cycle from the time that a data set is selected for acquisition, onboarding, and ingestion to the point where data feeds the end-users’ analyses and visualizations.
Attendees will learn about key strategy issues and opportunities such as:
- Understanding cloud features and services
- Cloud economics basics
- Supporting the analytics life cycle
- Determining the right approach to data warehouse migration
- Leveraging self-service to support a broad array of analytics consumers
- Increasing cloud data warehouse return on investment
