Databases have long served as the lifeline of the business. Therefore, it is no surprise that performance has always been top of mind. Whether it be a traditional row-formatted database to handle millions of transactions a day or a columnar database for advanced analytics to help uncover deep insights about the business, the goal is to service all requests as quickly as possible. This is especially true as organizations look to gain an edge on their competition by analyzing data from their transactional (OLTP) database to make more informed business decisions. The traditional model (see Figure 1) for doing this leverages two separate sets of resources, with an ETL being required to transfer the data from the OLTP database to a data warehouse for analysis. Two obvious problems exist with this implementation. First, I/O bottlenecks can quickly arise because the databases reside on disk and second, analysis is constantly being done on stale data.
In-memory databases have helped address p
With an ever-growing array of customer interactions, especially digital, businesses are rapidly looking to gain competitive advantage by using data and insights at scale to create and activate 360-degree profiles of their customers to deliver a better experience. In a rush to accelerate digital growth and improve their business strategies, many global enterprises have built soiled, redundant technology environments, resulting in inaccurate, or worse, conflicting views of their customer's brand interactions. For example, Forrester's research reveals that 90% of enterprises use multiple analytics tools.
Companies that put data at the centre of their business gain better insights and deliver more effective marketing. Data centricity at an organisational level is the priority for larger companies, mindful of the opportunities afforded by more scientific commercial decision-making and data-driven marketing. A focus on data alone in the context of customer analytics is not enough, however. Companies require insights from their data to deliver first-class customer experiences that give them a competitive advantage.
Our global survey of more than 1,000 business respondents shows that companies are rightly focused on activities powered by actionable insights as opposed to focusing on data for its own sake. More effective segmentation and targeting (65%), and better marketing attribution (52%), are the top data-related priorities for marketers, while ‘technologists’ (including analysts, ecommerce, and IT professionals) are primarily focused on making their organisations more data-centric (50%

A modern data warehouse is designed to
support rapid data growth and interactive analytics over a variety of relational, non-relational, and
streaming data types leveraging a single, easy-to-use interface. It provides a common architectural
platform for leveraging new big data technologies to existing data warehouse methods, thereby enabling
organizations to derive deeper business insights.
Key elements of a modern data warehouse:
• Data ingestion: take advantage of relational, non-relational, and streaming data sources
• Federated querying: ability to run a query across heterogeneous sources of data
• Data consumption: support numerous types of analysis - ad-hoc exploration, predefined
reporting/dashboards, predictive and advanced analytics

Big data projects often entail moving data between multiple cloud and legacy on-premise environments. A typical scenario involves moving data from a cloud-based source to a cloud-based normalization application, to an on-premise system for consolidation with other data, and then through various cloud and on-premise applications that analyze the data. Processing and analysis turn the disparate data into business insights delivered though dashboards, reports, and data warehouses - often using cloud-based apps.
The workflows that take data from ingestion to delivery are highly complex and have numerous dependencies along the way. Speed, reliability, and scalability are crucial. So, although data scientists and engineers may do things manually during proof of concept, manual processes don't scale.
