Business intelligence (BI) is undeniably crucial. Data is king, and business leaders want to quickly―and securely―tap into it to gain competitive insight, go to market faster, and make the best possible tactical and strategic decisions. The key to success is real-time data analytics.
At NetApp, real-time data analytics capability is limited because of our traditional data warehouse (DWH) approach using ETL (Extract Transform Load) processes that pulls data out of one database, places it into another (and perhaps another), before reports can be generated. It can take days to ingest data from the multiple sources to report historical operational results.
