When I hear the phrase “Data Warehouse Optimization”, shivers go down my spine.  It sounds like such a complicated undertaking.  After all, data warehouses are big, cumbersome and complex systems that can store terabytes and even petabytes of data that people depend on to make important decisions on the way their business is run.  The thought of any type of tinkering with such an integral part of a modern business would make even the most seasoned CIO’s break out into cold sweats. However, the v...

Introduction to the Agile Data Lake

Thu, 10/18/2018 - 16:41
Let’s be honest, the ‘Data Lake’ is one of the latest buzz-words everyone is talking about. Like many buzzwords, few really know how to explain what it is, what it is supposed to do, and/or how to design and build one.  As pervasive as they appear to be, you may be surprised to learn that Gartner predicts that only 15% of Data Lake projects make it into production.  Forrester predicts that 33% of Enterprises will take their attempted Data Lake projects off life-support.  That’s scary!  Data Lake...

California Leads the US in Online Privacy Rules

Tue, 10/02/2018 - 19:12
With California often being looked to as the state of innovation, the newly enforced California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) came as no surprise.
