Let me begin my first blog for the BeyeNETWORK by saying: WOW! In the beginning of March of this year, my first article for the BeyeNETWORK was published. The article focused on the flaws of the classic data warehouse architectures. It was Part 1 of a series of articles on the Data Delivery Platform. I had expected it would attract some attention, but not this much. Right now, it is the most read article on the BeyeNETWORK. Therefore, WOW!
In a way, the popularity of the article makes sense. We have been working on classic warehouse architectures for so long. If something new is introduced, it always leads to reactions: some positive, some negative. But whatever the reaction, what's important is that it will make people rethink their classic architectures. Architectural decisions that were made more than ten years ago, might not be the right decisions anymore. Requirements have changed, and technology has changed, and new technology leads to new opportunites. Just remember the steam engine and the Internet itself. Both technologies gave us new opportunities.
On April 1 the second part of this series will be published. In this article, I introduce the Data Delivery Platform. Let's see what this article will do.
