With data management increasingly moving to object storage and cloud data warehouses, organizations naturally expect BI applications to also benefit from the scale of data and real-time analytics. The traditional BI architecture in this cloud native environment surfaces not-so-obvious challenges: while object storage scales for you to store large amounts of data, the analytics can only be done on subsets; while the data can be ingested in real time, the analytics have to wait for the data warehouse batch ETL cycles before it can be used; and it’s time to invest in an agile and cloud native architecture for BI, which doesn’t rely on outdated analytic patterns of traditional BI.

Shant Hovsepian explains how the application of traditional BI to cloud native data management and warehousing can result in a “frankenstack” that many users have tried to simplify in the first place by choosing cloud. You’ll review service-oriented design of the clouds (storage, compute, catalog, security, and SQL service) and describe how BI should be a native service in this environment.
