It’s no secret that cloud adoption is growing, with the cloud quickly becoming the home for more and more data and analytics solutions. Many businesses commonly have data stored in cloud databases like Google BigQuery, Amazon Redshift, or in Salesforce. For these organisations that are “heavily cloudy,” an analytics solution hosted in the cloud is a no-brainer.
Cloud adoption in Australia is high. Recent Forrester and Infosys research shows that Australia is ahead of some European countries and the US. But while many organisations have embraced the cloud entirely, there are a lot more who are in the process of making that move, and who have data stored in a range of places – including inside the firewall.
As part of my job, I speak with many of these businesses. They want the flexibility, ease of sharing and quick access of a cloud analytics product. So, how do these organisations – we’ll call them “mostly cloudy” – manage both cloud and on-premise data?
Here are five reasons companies are adopting cloud analytics for on-premise data. It’s no longer just about putting your data in the cloud: it’s about bringing the cloud to your data.
