Much has changed since data warehouses hit the scene some 30 years ago. First off, data volume (and type) has grown exponentially and at a faster clip than what was anticipated. Then there’s the need for increasingly sophisticated reporting and analysis at unprecedented speeds on today’s big data. And today’s analytic and BI tools must be easily consumed by an ever-expanding swath of non-techie business users.
Oh, and let’s not forget the huge increases over the years in the cost, complexity, and risk of building out sprawling server farms — and the army of pricey database administrators needed to maintain them.
Truth be told, data warehouses never quite fully lived up to the their analytics/BI hype. That is, not until SAP introduced SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse powered by HANA in November 2011 – vanquishing the escalating and historic database challenges of unsustainable costs and unacceptable performance limitations.
