As companies strive for a unified view of their customers and other key corporate data, many turn to data warehouses as a place to keep the single source of digital truth.
A survey TDWI research released earlier this year found that 53% of companies have an on-premises data warehouse and 36% have one in the cloud. According to Gartner, 75% of all databases will be in the cloud by 2022, and by 2023, cloud database revenues will account for 50% of the total market.
Common cloud-based data warehouse database management systems include Amazon Redshift, Cloudera Data Warehouse, Databricks, Google BigQuery, Microsoft Azure Synapse, Snowflake Data Cloud and Teradata Vantage. On premises, popular platforms include IBM Db2, Oracle Autonomous Database, Teradata Vantage, SAP HANA and Vertica, though they can be deployed in the cloud as well.
