Traditional data warehousing & business intelligence has been flipped upside down
The past five years have dramatically changed the way organizations design, deploy, and manage data delivery and analytics systems. Hadoop, NoSQL, and “the cloud” have ushered in a new era of scale-out, elastic, and real-time computing, while new data preparation, catalog, and analysis tools aided by advanced machine learning and search technologies have empowered business users to analyze more data with less assistance from their IT department.
The modern analytics ecosystem is an agile, adaptable, living environment. Like a "smart factory" or "smart building,” a modern analytics ecosystem automatically detects changes in data inputs or outputs and responds in real time, updating metadata, data models, and reports as needed with minimal human intervention. Modern data and analytics platforms make it easier to ingest and use large amounts of diverse data that can then be analyzed in interactive views of business information.
