In recent years, some users have harbored concerns about clouds in general, as well as their use in data warehousing. As the number of user organizations practicing elastic data warehousing on clouds has increased, the track record of success has helped other users get past perceptual barriers and other myths concerning security, multi-tenancy, and interfacing with clouds.
We all know that data warehouses and users’ best practices for them are changing dramatically today. As users build new data warehouses and modernize established ones, they are turning to cloud-based elastic data warehousing, because the automation of elasticity yields agility, ease of use, scalability, and performance, while reducing maintenance, tuning, capital investments, and other costs.
This webinar will:
- Demystify elastic data warehousing by debunking myths about it
- Define elastic data warehousing and its goals in terms that data management professionals and business users can relate to
- Show how cloud-based data-driven tools and platforms have proved themselves, such that users are now more comfortable adopting them
- Discuss the real-world benefits of data warehousing, data management, and analytics on elastic clouds
- Explain how data warehousing solutions built to leverage the full capabilities of an elastic cloud can satisfy new requirements for analytics, big data, data streams, and multi-structured data

A child's never-ending "whys" aren't meant to exasperate parents. Rather, these enquiries are genuine attempts at getting at the truth. By repeatedly asking “Why” (five is a good rule of thumb), you can peel away the layers of symptoms which can lead to the root cause of a problem. Very often the ostensible reason for a problem will lead you to another question.
In this webinar series, you’ll walk you through real scenarios that’ll show you how Tableau can help you get to that root cause. From uncovering the underlying cause of KPI changes to simply understanding why something happened, we will explore how to ask and answer these Whys and get to the truth, while staying immersed in the process of analysis.
In this webinar, we’ll look at a specific SALES scenario: Sales are up, but Profits are down. Why?
Imagine you work for a retail chain and your CEO just noticed sales were trending upwards but profitability is on the decline. He’s concerned and wants to know “Why”.
Taking a strategic approach to location performance measurement can reap big rewards by boosting sales and increasing customer satisfaction. Retailers must strive to understand shopper behavior in each department, including when they visit, how long they stay and what they do after visiting specific locations, information vital to defining and quantifying the desired customer experience. This data can help to determine performance at the departmental, brand or end-cap level – affecting customer experience and retail success.
This presentation will offer insights into the highest value applications of location analytics, including how location analytics measure the effects of marketing, merchandising and store operations on consumer experience and retail performance.
