Over the past year, the most talked-about topics revolved around two interconnected objectives: modernizing enterprise data architecture and transitioning to the cloud. As the evolution of cloud technologies continues to accelerate, it is easy to be overwhelmed by the speed of change and the breadth of technology options and variations in cloud-based services.
When considering a cloud-based data architecture, it is important to frame the decision process in the context of key differentiating factors. Some examples include ensuring high performance at a manageable cost and the ability to leverage the cloud’s scalable infrastructure, all while empowering the data analysts and data scientists with tools enabling real-time insights and decision making.
In this panel discussion, we begin with an overview of what your organization should look for when considering cloud data architecture options, specifically in relation to identifying who your data consumers are, making use of the key aspects of cloud data platforms, and the best ways to address data consumer needs. This will be followed by discussion zeroing in on the cloud data warehouse space including differentiators and cloud data warehouse use cases.
Attendees will learn:
- How to take advantage of a cloud data platform
- How the cloud’s scalable infrastructure provides high performance at a managed cost
- The challenges associated with managing a hybrid data architecture
- The positive impact easy-to-use, built-in data integration in the hands of your data consumers can have on business agility and outcomes
- How enabling data management from “edge to cloud” powers real-time analytics at the point of action for mobile and IoT
- How vendor-cloud partnerships enable optimized performance with no compromises
