In the past, businesses with focus on gathering, processing, interpreting, and storing large amounts of data could not go wrong with a traditional data ware house as the backbone of these operations. However, tech has evolved quite rapidly in the information age and these data warehouses we used to rely on are arguably obsolete at this point. As we gear up for the start of 2022, we expect a continued widespread shift from these outdated systems to more streamlined solutions.
Traditional Data Warehouse Shortcomings
1.DataSilos. Data silos are caused when data is organized by multiple internal departments or by specific use cases, making it difficult to readily share or access critical data between multiple departments. Number and complexity of Data silos only grow with time . Apart from not providing a 360-degree view of your customer, data silos also lead to increases in cost stemming from licensing and support (often from multiple providers).
2.LacklusterAnalytics. Traditionally, data warehouses (via Data Marts) are only used for standard reporting. Self-servicing can also be introduced with Cube implementation, but this is essentially the maximum extent of a traditional data warehouse’s capabilities. Advanced analytics like machine learning, forecasting, and recommendations are very difficult to achieve because of batched based processing used to load these data stores.
3.UntimelySolutions. One of the biggest drawbacks of the traditional warehouse is the limitation around data processing frequency. Data is processed once a day, and at end of the very end of the day. This means when the business looks at the generated reports, they are already one day old.
