Why Cloud Is the Future of Data Warehousing
February 24, 2017
Enterprise data warehouses remain as relevant as ever in today’s business environment. However, with a flood of new data pouring in at an increasingly rapid pace, the traditional data warehouse is not up to the task. To maintain their competitive advantage, organizations must take action now to modernize the traditional data warehouse.
This white paper describes how IBM dashDB, a fully managed cloud service or software-defined edition (currently in early access preview), transforms the traditional data warehouse with a hybrid architecture that is designed to provide all the flexibility and scalability of the cloud while ensuring that the proper security policies are enforced when needed. The value of a hybrid data warehouse is realized through a common analytics engine that can run advanced analytics against any data source at any deployment location without compromising data quality and IT budgets.
