Guest blogger Rebecca Wormleighton has returned with a post about how, in a time when business analytics is now an integral part of most businesses, including baseball, you can get the scalability, availability and performance you need from your business analytics and data warehousing applications.
What is the state of your data warehousing and business analytics infrastructure? Are users getting quick responses to queries or are they kept waiting? As demand for the information grows, is your infrastructure growing with it or is it too rigid to scale? How confident are you in the availability or performance of your data warehousing and business analytics applications?
