Building an Operational Data Warehouse for Real-time Analytics

Have you ever tried driving real-time updates to customers from your data warehouse? Or optimized a conversion funnel using real-time data? If so, you’ve probably suffered the pain of pushing your data warehouse past its limits. Analytical data warehouses are now ubiquitous in every company’s data workflow.
