Cloud-based Analytics in Action: Overview of EMA Research

Cloud-based business intelligence and analytics is evolving into much more than a low cost alternative to on-premises data center implementations. And cloud-based implementations are now on a par with, if not outperforming, on-premises analytical installations in terms of reliability, performance and flexibility. There is no longer a tradeoff between the two.

In the Fall of 2014, Enterprise Management Associate’s (EMA) performed an end-user survey of business and technology stakeholders across the globe on the topic of cloud-based analytics and business intelligence. From this research, John Myers, Managing Research Director for EMA’s Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing practice, will review trends in business drivers and strategy; evolving technical requirements; and the changes to the financial relation for analytics in the cloud.

Watch this webinar and learn about:

  • The importance of security in current cloud-based analytics environments
  • How time to value is more important than time to "heartbeat"
  • Total cost of ownership (TCO) versus the individual "sticker price" of cloud-based offerings
