Game-Changing Technology: Analytic Architectures A to Z

Presented by: Wayne Eckerson, Research Director, TechTarget Inc.

For the past 20 years, business intelligence (BI) teams have labored to build data warehouses to support business reporting and dashboard applications. In the next decade, however, companies will move beyond reporting to analytics, powered by a new breed of analytical platform that offers dramatic price-performance advantages. These new purpose-built machines and databases are changing the rules of the BI game, enabling companies to build analytical applications they never thought possible.

To fully exploit this new technology, BI teams need to understand the nature of the underlying technology and re-evaluate their entire approach to delivering information-rich business solutions. This session will showcase the technology driving analytical platforms and databases and examine the technical, organizational, and process architectures required to support a successful analytics practice.
