Data warehouse view – to the heights? With broken wings?
It would be pure naivety to believe that, in this rapidly changing world, data warehouses would be the sole exception: the foundations remain fixed for everlasting life plus two days, we see the joy of those who strive for the report and the satisfaction in all colourful-scented, animated once-upon-a-time mission critical admirations complying with all specifications – narrated even with part-words and glitter-bomb dreams – handed over just in time (or maybe a little bit earlier), that we produce in an evenly increasing number, with conveniently appropriate development & testing time, thus expanding the spam letters going straight to the Deleted Items folder that has not even been opened for several years, and last but not least, after the handover, the operators invite us for tea because they are satisfied with the artistic value of the new charge, and because we improved on the full charge by three hours.
- Small enterprise, small data warehouse – Here is the ROI, where’s the ROI?
- It is possible to develop in a smart way, but for whom? – developer’s lament
- Big Data is the Vietnamese tiger balm of DWH – but for flat feet as well?!
- DWH, AI, DG, DC – abbreviations one after the other
The author of these thoughts has already seen the data warehouse — in a fairy tale book, operated as a more complex thing than a wooden cube, and already drew two more or less regular rectangles on the board, connected them and then proudly signed off “A R C H I T E C T U R E”. An ogre in body, but in soul, too.
