What you'll learn

  • Understand the key characteristics of an Agile data warehouse


Modern use cases such as the customer journey and hyperpersonalization have blurred the boundaries between operational and analytics systems. Legacy operational databases and enterprise data warehouses find it really challenging to keep up with the demands in terms of agility and variety and playing in an ecosystem of open source ML and cloud data platforms, where everything is consumed as a service.

Raghu Chakravarth explores key considerations when building an Agile data warehouse and outlines a reference architecture for hybrid data. You’ll understand how a next-gen hybrid data architecture with an operational data warehouse as its foundation unifies the operational and analytics capabilities to help deliver on modern use cases. You’ll also learn how to implement a hybrid operational data warehouse that is agile enough to address the changing needs and flexible enough to give you the best cost for performance and helps you leverage existing IT investments. Raghu concludes by examining the needs and demands of personas such as data scientists, business analysts, and IT and business users who bring unique hyperpersonalization requirements to tomorrow’s data architecture.

This session is sponsored by Actian.
