Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET
Many organizations have launched their digital transformation initiatives and are planning to modernize their data environments and migrate to the cloud. However, risk-averse businesses often default to traditional data architectures such as data warehouses deployed using cloud-based computing resources when considering migrating their reporting and analytics applications. Replicating an on-premises footprint reinforces the need for the complex ecosystem for data extraction, segregation, and rampant duplication inherent in that traditional data warehouse layout. Organizations taking this approach who rely on proprietary tools, file formats, and table structures may be disappointed when their expectations for increased flexibility, scalability, elasticity, and lowered operational costs are not met.
When modernizing to the cloud, organizations have the opportunity to avoid the mistakes of the past. This webinar explores ways to avoid issues associated with the traditional architecture by considering how open data architectures can benefit a cloud modernization strategy. Open data architectures encourage innovation by reducing the complexity associated with proprietary file format and table layouts, and we will discuss how embracing best-of-breed open technologies and cloud-based services for a modernized data strategy leveraging the data lakehouse concept will mitigate the downsides of naïve lift-and-shift approaches to cloud migration.
Attendees will learn about:
- How open architectures can improve data democratization and data consumer enablement
- Simplifying enterprise data shareability
- Opportunities for minimizing data movement and data copying
- The benefits of ACID transaction semantics
- Methods to streamline performance
