Another Halloween just got over. I am sure all of you had a great time putting the lights and carving the pumpkin – at least your kids had really a fun time.  I too enjoyed standing at the door and giving out candies. My 11-year-old boy just came after a 2 hour Trick-or-Treat journey in my neighborhood. Not only that he was tired, but he was very upset. I asked him on his concerns and he listed a few: Read more

Data as a means of growth – How to get there?

FacebooktwitterlinkedinmailFacebooktwitterlinkedinmail

Most Organizations today aspire to be a data driven company but what exactly does it mean and what does it take you to get there? I am going to put my thoughts here based on my interactions with several of the mid size companies(less than a billion in revenue) in United States.

I am sure all of us agree that the traditional data warehousing itself took a long time to get matured in terms of the processes and governance aspects.
