Since t...

  • Despite the challenges associated with data warehousing, enterprise IT leaders have accepted it as a necessary evil of deriving value from information within Hadoop and other Big Data ecosystems. How much does it cost to create data warehouses or datamarts that extract data out of Hadoop? Is there a better way to do BI on Big Data?!

  • Over the years, Big Data pundits have come up with great one-liners to highlight the importance of data: "Data is the new gold" or "Data is the new bacon" are examples of such analogies.  They are all great but there is one in particular that's been bothering me lately.  If you're coming to next week's DataWorks event, be sure to attend the AtScale keynote on Wednesday to find out whic...
