An Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) is a critical factor in getting a leg up on the competition. Organizations invest millions of dollars and thousands of person hours designing, implementing and maintaining their EDW. Far to often, those responsible for the EDW are disappointed that the EDW does not provide a competitive advantage and costs to maintain it keep climbing.
This presentation will explore the reasons why so many EDW implementations don't live up to expectations. We will also discuss some ways to have a high probability of success in implementing an EDW at a low initial cost and a low total cost of ownership (TCO). Some may result in spirited discussion.
