Real-time In-memory Technologies Do Not Make Data Warehousing Obsolete


The benefits of well thought-out architecture for designing and implementing large-scale DW environments are well-documented. Perhaps the best known of the DW architectures is the Corporate Information Factory. Since the creation of this architecture, there have been many technological advances, making its implementation faster, more scalable, and better performing. The data warehouse is no longer “off limits” to the business community; self-service BI, more sophisticated types of analytics, and true experimental (data science) analyses can now be performed with ease, and an increase in productivity and agility and flexibility of overall BI deployments is the result. Learn more in this white paper authored by one of the co-developers of the corporate information factory DW architecture.
