Impacts and Recommendations

  • More than 10% of enterprises have now deployed some form of the LDW architecture, and it has emerged as the primary enabling architecture to support bimodal demands on data management for analytics
  • New, flexible deployment options and cost models manifested by cloud and "as-a-service" offerings are becoming increasingly legitimate alternatives to traditional on-premises approaches
  • As new technologies and deployment options such as data lakes proliferate, they will augment rather than replace traditional data warehouse and DMSA deployment practices
