At this point in 2019, it is quite obvious that the technology landscape is changing rapidly. One hot topic that is impacting every industry and business unit is the facelift that data warehouses of the past are going through. While technology updates are a common occurrence, drastic changes in concepts like the pivot to cloud based modern data warehouses that boast immense functionality improvements are rare and extremely impactful to say the least. We could talk about the benefits of a cloud data warehouse all day but today we want to highlight the pitfalls of data warehouses of the past to exemplify the need for change and answer the new big question, “Is our data warehouse holding us back?” (more…)
Last and early this week some of the largest players in the game of enterprise technologies made big moves in the form of either acquisitions or partnerships in an effort to effectively position themselves and their customers for the future. As data sources, complexity, and demands for insights continue to rise at a rapid pace there is one thing becoming crystal clear; cloud data warehouses are essential. Successful forward thinking organizations are demanding single sources of the truth that can handle and aggregate their data while boasting advanced analytic services on the fly for every user, all the time. These acquisitions and partnerships that have been established speak to certain parts in the link of data storage, accessibility, analysis, and visualization.

Pandera Systems Chief Data Officer, Matthew Thomas spoke with Kimberly Whitler of Forbes to explain why companies are turning to Chief Data Officers to generate more value out of data beyond the typical CIO and CMO roles.
Whitler (Forbes): Can you describe the CDO role?
Thomas: To truly appreciate the increasing need for the CDO’s role, one must first understand that 90 percent of the world’s data was created in the past two years alone. That’s a lot of information for a company to suddenly organize, secure and make sense of, let alone make a strategic decision on. The CDO emerged as organizations realized the need for someone to lead the management of all of this data as well as guide the organization in technology adoption and training necessary to storing and distributing it all.

Simply put, disparate solutions won’t cut it in a sophisticated and competitive marketplace and the big players know it.

Fortunately, planning and proving marketing results has never been easier than it is today. By analyzing and weaving together touch points in a deliberate manner, marketing ROI, and more importantly, conversions, are finally within reach. Through journey analytics, companies are capturing and acting on “Micro-Moments” that were previously unseen in a proactive and time-sensitive fashion – adding millions to their bottom lines. With all this value, why aren’t all companies doing it? Simple – it’s easier said than done. Here are the top challenges businesses are faced with when trying to architect effective, data-driven customer journeys at scale:
They say history repeats itself. As a case in point, data center consolidations eventually stifle innovation and push for a rebadge of innovators. It has taken a long time to undo these efforts, so don’t make the same mistake. Transparency into all your of your different systems as they interact with the cloud is essential to constantly innovate. Unfortunately, not all cloud providers are created equal nor have good intentions. Keep these few things in mind:
