Cloud data warehousing helps to meet the challenges of legacy data warehouses that struggle to keep up with growing data volumes, changing service level expectations, and the need to integrate structured warehouse data with unstructured data in a data lake. Cloud data warehousing provides many benefits, but cloud migration isn’t fast and easy. Migrating an existing data warehouse to the cloud is a complex process of moving schema, data, and ETL. The complexity increases when architectural modernization, restructuring of database schema or rebuilding of data pipelines is needed.
This session describes the benefits, techniques, and challenges of migrating an existing data warehouse to the cloud. We’ll overview the major cloud data warehouse providers and examine some technologies that can ease the pain of cloud migration. Migration pragmatics are described within the framework of a step-by-step approach.
Moving an existing data warehouse to the cloud is not quick, and it isn’t easy, but there are real and substantial benefits. Most companies avoid the “big bang” and migrate incrementally. The techniques and technologies described here will help you to start quickly and navigate through the migration roadmap smoothly.
This is a participative workshop. Participants should arrive with knowledge of one or more on-premises data warehouses that they are considering moving to the cloud. You’ll perform exercises to analyze the upside and downside of cloud migration, to make migration decisions, and to develop a migration plan.
