Let's Talk Data Management

Modern Data Pipelines: Improving Speed, Governance, and Analysis

DATE: June 20, 2018

TIME: 2 PM Eastern / 11 AM Pacific


About the Webinar

Legacy data warehouses were built around old constraints: slow processors, expensive storage, thin pipes. Over time, the process of feeding those warehouses became complex and brittle. Fast forward to today, and a whole new model is taking shape. Cloud-borne data sources are exploding, while cloud-based data warehousing solutions provide much more agile and affordable analysis. The big question: how to feed these next-generation warehouses?

Register for this DM Radio Deep Dive to hear Analyst Eric Kavanagh explain how modern data pipelines are transforming the data warehousing paradigm. He'll be joined by Taylor Brown of Fivetran, who will chronicle recent developments in data management methodologies, and how they're fundamentally changing the analytical workflow. He'll demonstrate how standardized base tables can obviate many of the time-intensive and error-prone processes of yesterday, thus improving governance, streamlining analytics, and empowering business analysts.
