There’s something very satisfying about using a single, cloud database solution to solve many business problems. This is exactly what BPM Northwest experiences with IBM dashDB when delivering Data and Analytics solutions to clients worldwide.
The exciting success with dashDB compelled BPM Northwest to share implementations and best practices with IDC.
In the webcast they team up to discuss the value and realities of moving analytical workloads to the cloud. Challenges around governance, data integration, and skills are also discussed as organizations are very interested and driven to seize the opportunities of a cloud data warehouse.
In the webcast, you will hear three ways that you can utilize IBM dashDB:
- New applications, with some integration with on-premises systems
- Self-service, business-driven sandbox
- Migrating existing data warehouse workloads
After watching the webcast, please think about how IBM dashDB use cases discussed can apply to your challenges and if a hybrid data warehouse is the right solution for you.
