How to Revamp your Data Warehouse and Lake for Digital Business


Digital Business transforms industries and reinvents entire enterprises. Vast volumes of up-to-the-minute data and novel technologies unleash new, instant business value. Or so we are told.

But why do so many companies struggle with Digital Transformation? Why is success so elusive?

The short answer is that architects and implementers are too focused on new technologies and ignore the lessons and value of existing systems. And yet, most enterprises have a wealth of existing infrastructure, technologies, and skills that can be reused and repurposed. What’s needed is new architectures and new thinking.

In this seminar, Dr. Barry Devlin shows how a modern architectural foundation, based on his book “Business unintelligence,” can transform and extend your existing systems to support a fully functioning Digital Business.
