Cloud EDW: We Need a Bigger Boat

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

 In Jaws, the 1975 film where a small beach town is terrorized by a 25-foot shark, there is a scene where the local sheriff is out hunting the shark in a small boat. When confronted with the beast’s immense size he famously says, “You’re going to need a bigger boat.”
As Overstock’s data needs have exploded over the past few years, and our on premise EDW has not been able to keep up. Our own version of needing a bigger boat.
Beyond the new cloud environment, we will also be introducing persistent staging layer to product and dev teams, direct interaction with UMF, cloud DataLabs, business team resource buckets and few other surprises.
Attendees of this session will have a high-level understanding of what Cloud EDW will look like and what it means for them, their teams and Overstock.
