Moving your data analytics to the cloud isn’t so easy

David Linthicum

It doesn’t take a genius to understand that the data warehouses and data marts of the past were of little use. Their data was typically too old, the processing too cumbersome, and the costs too high. Today’s cloud-based data analytics have the ability to do things in real time, databases can operate at the “speed of need,” and even small enterprises can bind data analytics processing with the latest “cool kids” technology such as machine learning and predictive algorithms.

Data Analytics in the Cloud for Developers and Founders

Speaker: Javier Ramírez, Senior AWS Developer Advocate, AWS

In this session, we address common pitfalls of building data lakes and show how AWS can help you manage data and analytics more efficiently.

The right way to pick a cloud database

David Linthicum

It’s all the rage these days: moving on-premises data to the cloud. But should you use cloud-native databases or databases that run both in the cloud and on-premises? There are trade-offs between the cloud-native (meaning “cloud-only”) and dual cloud/on-premises options, mostly involving cost and operational efficiency.
