According to a recent survey by Eckerson Group and the Business Application Research Center (BARC), the number of companies using the cloud for data warehousing or BI projects has increased nearly 50% since 2013.
For the past decade, most companies have resisted implementing a data warehouse (DW) in the cloud, largely due to concerns about security. In addition, few had experience using cloud-based applications.
But times have changed.
According to a recent survey by Eckerson Group and the Business Application Research Center (BARC), the number of companies using the cloud for data warehousing or BI projects has increased nearly 50% since 2013. This is impressive growth, but why are so many companies getting on the cloud train, you might wonder. That’s an easy answer. The cloud’s virtues are numerous, including speed of deployment, scalability, agility and improved economics. However, the process is not without its bumps. There are significant issues that BI teams must address before taking the plunge.
Attunity is hosting a webinar to tackle these issues and help organizations overcome the common hurdles. The webinar features one of the industry’s most respected experts on cloud data warehousing – Wayne Eckerson, Industry Analyst and Founder and Principal Consultant of The Eckerson Group.
Wayne has been a thought leader in the business intelligence and analytics field since the early 1990s, and is now a sought-after consultant, noted speaker, and expert educator who presents persuasively about complex topics. He has conducted many groundbreaking research studies, chaired numerous conferences, written two widely read books on performance dashboards and analytics, and consulted for numerous organizations.
As a guest speaker on our webinar, Wayne will examine seven challenges that organizations need to consider before implementing a cloud data warehouse:
- Data Delivery
- Design and Development
- Security and Compliance
- Hybrid Cloud
Along side of Kevin Petrie at Attunity, he will also explore how data warehouse automation technology can accelerate cloud data warehouse design, creation and updates, enabling IT to meet business requirements faster and at lower cost.
After the webinar, we will make Wayne’s accompanying checklist report available, which is designed to help you and your team identify key questions to ask before implementing a cloud data warehouse. You can reserve it early here.
