A scalable and future-proof solution for data warehousing

What is our primary use case?

We install this solution for our clients. At the moment we are in the middle of an installation for a data warehouse that will be used by a telecommunications company that is based in Lesotho. We have not gone into production yet, but we have used it in a test environment and it works very well. We are a technology company, so we handle software development, software implementation, data warehousing, and business intelligence. We are using the on-premise deployment model. In Africa, there isn't much adoption of cloud services, so most of our clients are expecting on-premise implementation.

Pros and Cons

  • "We chose Greenplum because of the architecture in terms of clustering databases and being able to have, or at least utilize the resources that are sitting on a database."
  • "The installation is difficult and should be made easier."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution specifically for the scalability. This solution has a more futuristic technology, as opposed to the old school kind of data warehousing. If people are interested in getting something that is more future-proof, then I would recommend this solution. So far, we're comfortable with what we've seen. What we have configured is addressing our needs at the moment. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Good performance, security, and technical support

What is our primary use case?

We are using Oracle Exadata as a warehouse for historical reporting to provide the historical data that can be utilized by Power BI for reporting.

Pros and Cons

  • "The performance of the data is the most important part."
  • "The management monitoring tools are quite important and an area that needs some improvement."

What other advice do I have?

The ecosystem that we have in our company is majorly Microsoft-based. When I refer to power BI or other integrated tools, they are by Microsoft. I would certainly recommend using Oracle. They have their cloud applications and I would say that it is not a good idea to go with an on-premises deployment. My suggestion is that people go with OCI instead. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
