Bringing cloud-based modernization to data warehousing and analytics

by pm2net on October 28, 2014 , Comments Off on Bringing cloud-based modernization to data warehousing and analytics

IBM this week announced dashDB, which brings cloud-based modernization to data warehousing and analytics. dashDB helps customers to ensure that infrastructure doesn’t stand in the way of them realizing fast value from an agile enterprise data warehouse.
