You use multiple database for different use cases in our organisations and it's difficult to pull that information together in a coherent way

Too many modern organizations find themselves with a complicated database structure that relies on a vast number of different tools and setups.  Typically this happens over time as different players seek the right tools for their specific needs, without thinking deeply about how it fits into the overall ecosystem.  As such, you get an array of different technologies that don’t fit well together and require precious technical resources to manage data transfers, data quality, and conversion errors that can be rather tedious.

But more than the challenges that arise, there is also significant opportunity cost when you’re working with multiple databases at once.

The value of one all-encompassing data warehouse

When your data is split across different systems, you miss out on so much serendipitous discovery because you never have a holistic view of all the data at your disposal.  It’s nearly impossible to spot correlations and important relationships between data that lives across different structures.  And even if you do, it’s difficult and time-consuming to do so.

Having all your data in one warehouse allows for you to perform advanced analytics on everything that you have access to, enabling an entirely new range of opportunities for data-driven insights. 

Just by having everything in close proximity, you create discoverability and cohesion that can transform how your business responds to data.

We all hear of the magic that is coming from the world of machine learning and data science, but all that starts with a well-structured data warehouse that is working at full power.  This has to be a priority if you want to compete in the data Olympics that we find ourselves in.
