Government agencies are feeling the heat of today, stoked by constant pressure from citizens, mandates and higher-ups. But when it takes them hours or days to access the data that employees need, agencies have no way to measure up to these expectations. These are today’s challenges, but agencies are taking them on with yesterday’s technology.
Recently, the cloud has been promised as a solution, but moving existing applications from on-premise to off-premise is not enough. In this course, we’ll explore the value of cloud-based data warehouses, which provide instant access to actionable, valuable information in a new setting. Going from the first to the third lesson, we’ll navigate the data challenges that agencies are facing, the pros and pitfalls of cloud, and the fit of cloud-based data warehouses in a modern context.
