Data Warehouse Now in the Cloud
September 29th, 2016 by the STORIS Marketing Team
STORIS is now offering their Data Warehouse platform in the cloud. This new deployment will be sold in affordable subscription packages, making a business intelligence tool once exclusive to enterprise retailers available to all businesses.
Vice President of Sales, Mark Ricciardi, commented,
“This makes one of our most impactful and utilized business intelligence tools universally available to all of our current and future retail partners. Our development team tackled the challenge of making a technology formerly restrained by technical infrastructure available to cloud clients of all sizes and at an affordable price.”
Historically, Data Warehouse required a server or single tenancy cloud, in fact STORIS has been offering Data Warehouse since 2002. The new deployment model allows retailers on a shared cloud environment to take advantage of this powerful tool. As the majority of retailers are choosing the cloud platform including enterprise retailers, changing how Data Warehouse is hosted was an important shift. Cloud Data Warehousing is not just new to STORIS, but is a relatively new tool in the IT world.
Data Warehouse is a business intelligence tool that provides retailers with the ability to store static data outside of their transactional retail system for the purpose of data mining. Its applications include building user-defined queries to uncover strategic intelligence.
Data Warehouse is SQL-based, which makes running analyses on your data efficient and flexible. Retailers with SQL knowledge can create queried reports themselves or STORIS offers report writing services. In addition, STORIS offers multiple training curriculum ranging from Beginner to Advanced SQL. This training provides a comprehensive understanding of STORIS’ file structure with specifics in creating SQL Queries.
