Deep Dive: Data Warehouse Automation
January 1, 2019
The invention of data warehouse automation (DWA) as a technology category was inevitable. And it was invented in a real sense: the first DWA tools evolved to address gaps in the development, deployment, and maintenance of data warehouse systems. But just as the role of the data warehouse has changed, so, too, has that of the DWA tool sets that evolved to support it.
Since early 2016, vendors have focused on updating or redesigning their products to better accommodate cloud sources and targets. Several vendors have even moved core pieces of their DWA products or services into the cloud.
