In today’s world, it is becoming hard to measure the volume of data being generated. One estimate puts it at 44 zettabytes at the beginning of 2020 and is expected to be 463 exabytes generated every day globally by 2025.
Data is a mine of information that can help businesses with informed decisions across functions — to improve in several areas: a company’s competitive advantage, efficiency within the organization, productivity, customer delight and revenues. To be able to do this, businesses need vast storage, real-time access to data, tools to process this data and run analytics to gain insights. Legacy, on-prem systems are incapable of fulfilling all these requirements and so businesses are moving to the cloud to keep costs low while tapping the vast quantities of data to their advantage.
Cloud databases such as Snowflake, BigQuery, Teradata, Redshift, Synapse, etc. are among some of the top cloud data platforms that businesses invest in. Sometimes the data is spread across multiple clouds and databases. To protect their existing infrastructure as well as for security reasons, some of the data and processes continue to be run from on-prem systems. This creates the need for reporting and analytics tools that can pull data from these multiple sources.
Apart from spreading out the data for security and cost reasons, the different cloud databases also offer unique advantages.
Snowflake, for instance, is easy to deploy and configure and can handle structured and semi-structured data. It also has its own SQL query engine and a centralized data repository accessible by different compute nodes.
Google BigQuery enables the querying of large data sets and offers machine learning capabilities. It is a flexible database with data stored in distributed, replicated storage with compute clusters of nodes used to process it.
Teradata is built for flexibility and scalability. A hybrid cloud data warehousing tool, it can process large volumes of data.
Azure Synapse is a cloud relational database that enables loading and processing petabytes of data along with real-time reporting.
The data stored in these are raw and for businesses to be able to gain insights, they need reporting and analytics tools. There are several available in the market, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.
Some of the disadvantages one may come across include:
