Take a step back for a minute and ask yourself
if your organization is ready for enterprise data warehousing (EDW).
Or, if you’re already doing it, how is it going – I mean, how is it really going? And no matter how successful you’ve been, what can you do next for your business?
Many of us are in the budgeting phase, planning how to spend our budgets for 2008. Traditionally, we make our personal
New Year’s resolutions in December, looking back over the previous year
to see what we want to improve. But in business the best time for that
retrospection is NOW so that you have time to influence what you do
next year. Part of that retrospection should be assessing your
readiness for EDW.
EDW is a process. It is not as simple as switching on a light switch and you suddenly have EDW capability and benefits.
enterprise must understand and commit the people, processes and
products necessary to achieving an EDW solution that establishes data
as your corporate asset.
