Not Your Father’s Data Warehouse
Modern DW Design Patterns in Azure
Let’s explore the advantages of a modern data warehouse architecture. Don’t conventional data warehouse technologies still work? Why not just use SQL Server?
As the variety, volume and velocity of data sources changes, businesses must reconsider the way they consume data for reporting, analytics and decision-support. In this session, we will take a close look at a reference architecture and the Azure services and technology options used in modern data warehouse solutions.
