The advent of Apache Hadoop™ has led many organizations to replatform their existing architectures to reduce data management costs and find new ways to unlock the value of their data. One area that benefits from replatforming is the data warehouse. According to research firm Gartner, “starting in 2018, data warehouse managers will benefit from hybrid architectures that eliminate data silos by blending current best practices with ‘big data’ and other emerging technology types.” There’s undoubtedly a lot to ain by modernizing data warehouse architectures to leverage new technologies, however the replatforming process itself can be harder than it would at first appear.
