New Age Data WarehousingDecember 9, 2008
Letters to SantaDecember 15, 2008
My new podcast with Smart Data Collective discusses how too many IT projects provide only short-term solutions.
Management ends up frustrated not only because of the time and cost
these projects consume, but also because the solutions are not
responsive to their needs.
You need to create an architectural blueprint and make sure someone is
responsible for the balance between the hub (data warehouse) and spokes
(data marts and cubes) of your intelligence efforts. But, important as architecture is, companies shouldn’t become
too enamored of it. At the end of the day, the goal isn’t to perfect
the data, but to “enable business to make decisions.
