Moving Your Data Infrastructure To The Cloud

By: Claudia Imhoff, Ph.D. | November 2, 2017

Business intelligence (BI) and analytics have heartily embraced cloud computing. The massive increase of both data volumes and the complexity of these environments have made the move to cloud implementations necessary for many companies. While there are clear benefits to a move, the cloud does not remove or eliminate the basic design principles so necessary to have a sustainable and maintainable analytics ecosystem.

This paper written by industry expert Dr. Claudia Imhoff, President of Intelligent Solutions and Founder of the Boulder Business Intelligence Brain Trust, discusses the benefits and challenges in a move to cloud computing. It also dispels several myths that have sprung up when the move involves data infrastructure, business intelligence (BI) and analytics capabilities. Lastly, it shares how data warehouse automation is a great boon to the team performing the migration.
