Externt event, Föreläsningar | 4 april, 2019

Data Warehouse Modernization

In this course, you will learn why and how to modernize your data warehouse infrastructures with new technologies, from Hadoop to Data Lakes and a flourishing market of cloud solutions.

Today, with most people connected to the Internet, the power of the customer is almost limitless. They can browse your competitors’ web sites. They can compare prices, view sentiment about your business, and switch loyalty in a single click any-time, anywhere all from a mobile device. In addition, social media has given customers a voice to express opinion and sentiment about products and brands and to create social networks by attracting followers, and following others. For many CEO’s, customer retention, loyalty, service and growth are top of their agenda. Therefore, they want access to new data to enrich what they already know about customers.

In addition, COO’s are adding telemetry to capture new data to optimise operations. Yet at the same time, regulations like GDPR, KYC, MiFiD are everywhere, making governance and risk management also a priority.

Given these new requirements, many companies running traditional data warehouses and data marts are realising that just recording historical transaction activity is not enough. The pace of change is quickening, business is demanding lower latency data, the backlog of changes to data warehouses and data marts is growing rapidly while testing remains slow and complicated.  Also with business unit autonomy, new technology available on the cloud, and pent up demand for machine learning everywhere, shadow IT is springing up in business units fracturing the analytical effort and building new analytical silos that are not integrated with data warehouses. With so much pressure to remain competitive, how then do you modernize your analytical setup, to improve governance and agility, bring in new data, re-use data assets, modernize your data warehouse to easily accommodating change, lower data latency and integrate with other analytical workloads to provide a new modern logical data warehouse for the digital enterprise?

This 2-day course looks at the business case as to why you need to do this, discusses the tools and techniques needed to capture new data types, establish a data pipeline to produce re-usable data assets, modernize your data warehouse and bring together the data and analytics needed to accelerate time to value, deliver new insights to foster growth, reduce costs, improve effectiveness and enable competitive advantage.
