TDWI Solution Summit: Cloud BI

Scalable, Cost-Effective BI Solutions on Clouds

Cloud solutions promise advantages for business intelligence (BI), data warehousing (DW), and analytics. According to users’ responses to TDWI’s cloud survey, various types of clouds can provide automatic scalability and generous capacity for booming big data, analytic workloads, and departmental BI, while also reducing capital expenditures and administrative costs.

But there are many details that BI professionals need to understand before embracing clouds. There are multiple types of clouds, with varying applicability to BI purposes. Public and private clouds have pros and cons that vary per application. Most clouds are designed and optimized for application servers, whereas most BI professionals need optimization for database management systems and analytic applications. Support for clouds in vendor products varies widely. Furthermore, BI best practices relative to clouds are just now coalescing, especially those for security, governance, and data integration.
