No one data platform can address all of your business problems and opportunities. This common misunderstanding often leads to very expensive, bloated and ineffective data platforms, ones that have to be completely re-engineered at great cost to the organization.

This presentation addresses how to ask the right questions that lead to building the right data platform (or updating an existing one) to solve your most important business needs. Do you need a data warehouse, a data vault or something else completely?

This presentation will cover multiple approaches illustrated through examples, which help you determine realistic plans and expectations that help demonstrate the value of such actions to both internal and external decision makers.

Among others, you’ll walk away with these takeaways:

  • How the different platforms best support different business requirements
  • Platform trade-offs
  • Why choosing the right platform matters
  • The right questions to ask when working on Business Requirements
