Remodeling The Data Warehouse

System z as the hub of a workload-optimized, business-analtyics system


Today’s world is increasingly interconnected and intelligent. We’re experiencing a revolution, and information is at the heart of it. Businesses taking full advantage of this new wealth of information to make more intelligent decisions are rising to the top.

One key transition occurring is operational business intelligence (BI). It’s not enough for an enterprise to capture data, it also must extract information and transform it into actionable knowledge. These applications require real-time or near real-time information availability, along with accelerated reporting cycles and progressively shorter extract, transformation and load windows.

These new requirements emphasize the need for an environment capable of high volumes of Web services managed in a service oriented architecture (SOA), while providing the availability, security and scalability necessary to stay aligned with operational systems. The shifts don’t merely change the requirements that data warehouse designs must meet, they mandate a rethinking of the data-warehouse architecture.
