Level:  Intermediate

While never as simple as the textbooks describe, multi-source enterprise integration and dimensional design for OLAP are “old hat”. Beyond these constructs for physical organization of the data warehouse, today’s DW architect must accommodate complementary data platforms such as Hadoop, agile techniques to provide fast exposure to business data, production sandboxes for business partners, and clear tiers of service in the shared enterprise DW.

This session presents a case study of experiments with these extensions of the data warehouse to serve a rapidly evolving business while advancing enterprise data integrity and quality.

What attendees will learn:

  • Architectural options for extended capabilities to the business and IT
  • Governance policies, procedural controls, and system constraints for such options
  • Case study with successes and failures
