What Do Architectures Look Like for Successful Companies Who Need Both BI and Data Science?

Dinner for Toronto IT and Data & Analytics Leaders

Thursday, June 16th, 2022 | STK Steakhouse

The data warehouse has been an analytics workhorse for decades for business intelligence teams. Unprecedented volumes of data, new types of data, and the need for advanced analyses like machine learning brought on the age of the data lake. Now, many companies have a data lake for data science, a data warehouse for BI, or a mishmash of both, possibly combined with a mandate to go to the cloud. The end result can be a sprawling mess, a lot of duplicated effort, a lot of missed opportunities, a lot of projects that never made it into production, and a lot of financial investment without return. Technical and spiritual unification of the two opposed camps can make a powerful impact on the effectiveness of analytics for the business overall.
