The Data Warehouse
The general opinion: Data Warehouse is complicated and difficult to modify data warehouse structure if the organization adopting the dimensional approach. It requires a lot of studies, lengthy process, data modeling, complex ETL, takes several resources and months to years to develop.
Would this work in these new times?
In today's world, organizations need to make decisions on fast data because everything around moving fast. Remember the marvelous climax in the movie The Martian. It may sound irrelevant here, but it is a genius and crazy thought. During the rescue mission, NASA plans to have Watney fly the escape vehicle into space so that his crew intercepts him. Can we imagine that? The plan sounds fictional and crazy, but Watney has to make the rocket as light as possible. I like that.
Get rid of bulk, old rules.
Adopt new methods and modern software innovations that make real sense and practical. The modern data architecture does similar to what Watney has done to his vehicle. Data movement and data transformations are essential but need to adopt methods that eliminate the waste and operates efficiently. Here comes our expertise to help you succeed.
