Modernizing Your Data Warehouse Environment

“Throw the baby out with the bathwater!” We hear that a lot. Changing business environments and competitive pressures have driven companies to seek a new edge from innovative technologies such as specialized data stores and the cloud. Today’s business intelligence (BI) and analytics implementation experts face disruptive decisions as they strive to support their business users’ shifting and diverse analytical needs. Increasing volumes and sources of data (on premises and in the cloud), technology adoption, more complex data integration and quality issues, and lower data latencies are just a few of the challenges that must be addressed.

Land O’Lakes: How Free-Form Data Lakes Are Complementing Structured Data Warehouses

As the data warehouse environment (DWE) continues to evolve, one of its strongest trends is the diversification of data platforms. A rigorously structured relational data warehouse is still at the heart of the DWE, but it is being joined more and more by other platform types, including data platforms based on columns, appliances, graph, streaming data, and open source.

Enabling Self-Service Analytics with Intelligent Data Integration

One of the strongest trends in information technology (IT) today is self service, which puts the power of creating data-driven solutions in the hands of the business user. This way, IT organizations are offloaded; they needn’t create unique datasets, reports, and analyses per user, which frees up IT’s time for other tasks. Furthermore, a broad range of end-users – mostly mildly technical business people – needn’t wait for help from IT, thereby giving them greater agility and creativity, while reducing the time to value and allowing them to apply their business expertise to a well-targeted solution. Therefore, self service is a win-win situation – but only if key pieces of technology are in place.

Moving Forward with IoT: Introducing TDWI's New IoT Readiness Assessment Tool

The Internet of Things (IoT) is hot and getting hotter. Consumers use it for health monitoring and “smart” home devices, such as thermostats and appliances. On the business front, a piece of equipment—or any business asset, really—can be tagged, monitored, and analyzed. This might include a sensor-enabled pressure valve on a piece of drilling equipment, a tagged piece of construction material, food moving to market, or a chip placed in an employee badge, not to mention smart cities, smart power grids, and more.
