The Briefing Room with Claudia Imhoff and Birst
Live Webcast April 9, 2013
What a difference a day can make! When Amazon announced their new RedShift offering – a data warehouse in the cloud – the entire industry of information management changed. The most notable disruption? Price. At a whopping $1,000 per year for a terabyte, RedShift achieved a price-point improvement that amounts to at least two orders of magnitude, if not three when compared to its top-tier competitors. But pricing is just one change; there's also the entire process by which data warehousing is done.
Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Dr. Claudia Imhoff explain why a new cloud-based reality for data warehousing significantly changes the game for business intelligence and analytics. She'll be briefed by Brad Peters of Birst who will tout his company's BI solution, which has been specifically architected for cloud-based hosting. Peters will discuss several key intricacies of doing BI in the cloud, including the unique provisioning, loading and modeling requirements. Founded in 2004, Birst has nearly a decade of doing cloud-based BI and Analytics.
