Datawarehousing on the Cloud – Twitterchat

#IBMBLU Twitterchat on Wednesday March 26th – 11 am to 12 pm ET

Enterprises thrive when the primary focus is on innovation and achieving business goals, without distractions related to the underlying infrastructure or large capital expenditures. Cloud computing technology is the rage right now, due to the flexible infrastructure and services that it provides and the agile methodology that enterprises can adopt, as a result.

Datawarehousing and analytic solutions help businesses glean valuable game changing insights from the huge torrent of data that heads their way – every day. Traditionally this would mean complex data management environments, a large team of experts and investments in infrastructure and technology so as to stay at the forefront of emerging trends.

The emergence of Datawarehousing solutions on the Cloud helps simplify and accelerate the delivery of insights from data, without the need for sophisticated environments and big budgets. BLU Acceleration for Cloud from IBM breaks the cost and complexity barriers and brings market leading technology to everyone with the need to analyze vast amounts of data. Powered by IBM BLU Acceleration, breakthrough in-memory database technology, and combined with Cognos BI, users can experience a simple, agile cloud solution.
