Most current BI systems are developed with classic database servers, ETL tools, and reporting tools. But with the advent of Big Data, are the architectures of these BI systems still sufficient? Are they flexible enough? Can they handle such massive quantities of data? Or is it time to adopt all these new data storage technologies, such as Hadoop, MapReduce, NoSQL, SQL-on-Hadoop, and Data Virtualization.
This seminar focuses on all the new technologies that have become available to develop modern BI systems. BI systems that allow organizations to analyze Big Data with the simplest self-service tool up to the most advanced analytical tool, that make integration of Enterprise Data and Big Data transparent, and that allow an evolutionary adoption of all the new technologies. The seminar gives the audiences a full and critical update of all the new products and technologies.
