Data Warehouse Survey Update

It’s the end of October now which means that the autumn trade show season is drawing to a close. This year we sponsored and exhibited at the TDWI World Conference in San Diego (and in Chicago earlier in the year), and the Teradata PARTNERS Conference in Nashville.

The less things change, the more they stay the same

In 2012, we surveyed attendees at TDWI World Conferences regarding topics related to data warehousing: how they handle change, how long it takes to deploy new data, costs associated with supporting the data warehouse and so on. Over this period we received well over 500 responses and have blogged about it and shared information in other places such as infographics on our website. Read more

Survey Results on Big Data

Another survey we ran in 2012 was conducted at a Big Data event we sponsored in London – Big Data Analytics 2012.

Survey Results on ETL-Based Data Warehouses

During 2012 we have been surveying TDWI World Conference attendees about their data warehousing investments. We wanted to know their thoughts and experiences on a variety of topics, ranging from whether they felt like IT and “the business” are on the same page in terms of keeping the warehouse up to date with the latest requirements, how long it takes to keep the warehouse current, and how many resources they expended on supporting their environment. We’ve received a little over 400 responses from events in Las Vegas, Chicago, San Diego and Boston. Read more
