Over at the Informatica blog Joe McKendrick recently wrote about When It’s Time to Give Data Warehouse a Digital Makeover.
In here Joe examines how data warehouses can be modernized to augment architectures supporting data lakes and Mater Data Management and the case for moving data warehouses to the cloud.
In my view, a lot of data management disciplines will eventually move to the cloud as one follows the other. By adding “beyond” I suggest, that cloud solutions will not only be something that is supported company by company. Eventually you will be able to get business outcome by sharing data management burdens within your business ecosystem.
My current venture called Product Data Lake is an example of such a solution. It modernizes the data warehouse thinking within product information sharing by using a data lake concept in the cloud ready-to-use by trading partners within business ecosystems:
- If you are a provider of product information, typically as a manufacturer of goods, you can harvest your business outcome by using us for Product Data Push
- If you are a receiver of product information, you can harvest your business outcome by using us for Product Data Pull
