Simple is STILL Better: Embrace Speed & Simplicity for a competitive edge

Customers’ embrace of the web and smart phones creates massive new data sets, many of them unstructured or semi-structured. These include opinions, preferences, chat and email transcripts, and web clickstreams. The hardware and software technologies underpinning first generation warehouses were not designed to manage data at today’s volume or variety.
