Old School vs. new school – Its Both!

24 Oct

Excellent article by Wayne Eckerson (most of his are) . We give Data Warehouses a bad name because they have been implemented in a way that does not meet the businesses needs – certainly not from an analytical perspective. HOWEVER, the business reasons that they exist remain, and this is Wayne’s point. I have been watching the shouting match between Inmon and Kimball.  I think they are both wrong – the answer is not as simple as they make it out to be – our world will be hybrid SQL/RDBMS and NoSQL and everything will need to play nice together! Those are my words  of wisdom on a Friday 🙂
