The rapid pace of innovation in the database landscape is causing IT leaders to entirely re-evaluate their data environment strategies. From Hadoop, to NoSQL, to Cloud data assets – the expectation for IT groups to stay current with both technologies and approaches has never been higher. The unfortunate truth is that while many CIOs and IT Directors work to integrate new technologies into their organizations, they miss the bigger pitfall – forgetting the role self-service analytics also plays in shaping the modern data environment.
This paper focuses on three shifts within the modern data environment that Information Technology leaders everywhere are starting to recognize as critical to the success of their overall organization’s ability to become data driven.
Concepts covered in this material include:
- The emergence of Hadoop and NoSQL and what that means for the traditional enterprise data warehouse
- Understanding how to evaluate cloud data sources
- Embracing self-service analytics as part of data platform strategy
