Realizing the full value of data warehousing in the cloud

Realizing the full value of data warehousing in the cloud Cloud environments play a key role when modernizing, and are rapidly changing the way businesses are thinking about their data and analytic strategy. However, to truly empower your data analysts, it’s critical to understand how best to leverage these environments for different analytic workloads while still keeping IT happy. During this webinar, we discuss the workload considerations when evaluating or migrating data warehousing in the cloud. We also go over common architectural patterns to better understand things such as using object storage vs local, designing for multi-tenancy, tuning performance for SLAs, and more. Additional topics include: • Design and benefits of cloud-based data warehousing • Best practices and workloads considerations from ad hoc to reporting • Enabling self-service access and analytics without the risk • Hybrid and multi-cloud strategies • Real world customer successes
