Autonomous Data Warehouse Simplifies Creating Data Warehouses and Data Marts

Vlamis has been helping companies create data warehouses for decades. Oracle‘s new Autonomous Data Warehouse offering makes this easier than ever. Gone is the tedious task of designing storage and indexing strategies. Yes, you still need to design the tables for storing your data, but if that‘s already done, you just upload your data and start querying it. This is perfect for departmental analytic solutions where you don‘t want to have to bother your IT department or hire a database administrator. The data is automatically backed up and you can increase storage and capacity at will. The Autonomous Data Warehouse fits well into a strategy of implementing an Analytic Warehouse that we covered in a recent blog article on Analytic Warehouses and are excited to continue showcasing this in our upcoming presentation Think Autonomous Live Demo Webcast and our Oracle OpenWorld session Autonomous Data Warehousing in the Real World: A Case Study.

Please contact us if you want to know more.
