Thinking outside the data warehouse: A New Data Warehouse eBook
I’ve been spending a good amount of time on the road lately kicking off the new year enabling sellers, partners and customers on our vast portfolio of data warehousing solutions. One question that I am consistently asked is “You (IBM) have so many technologies – DB2, Netezza, InfoSphere, etc. – How are they actually being used?”
On a product by product view the answer can be rather simple (ie. How DB2’s compression technology works) – But in real world scenarios, we are faced with many different situations, with different arrays of applied technologies.
We’ve taken a stab at consolidating some of the more popular stories in this space and built out a short eBook that goes from basic data warehousing appliance implementations through hub and spoke enterprise systems (ala Smart Consolidation) that leverage streaming technologies. While definitely not exhaustive, it does start the discussion around some of what our data warehousing technologies can do for you around business analytics.
