This multiplicity of databases has driven up costs. It has also limited the value of data analytics and business intelligence, because moving and shaping large volumes of data is a slow and complex process that delays time-toinsight by hours or days. The traditional pathway from data generation to business insight is inherently cumbersome and costly. Enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and other mission-critical applications must be supported by databases optimized for transactional speed. Transactional data must then be transferred to a separate data warehouse that is optimized for analytics. This data transfer requires complex extract, transform, and load (ETL) processes and is often an overnight batch job. Once the new data has been added to the warehouse, analytics structures, such as aggregates, indexes, cubes, and views, must be re-optimized to enable reasonable query performance. Only then can reports and queries be run to find out how the business is doing and what it can do better. Despite all the time and effort devoted to loading and optimizing data, complex queries can still take hours or even days to run in a traditional data warehouse, and query response times keep getting longer as data volumes grow. In business scenarios requiring a fast response, such as a customer interaction or a short-term supply chain crisis, the opportunity to act in the most effective manner is long gone before the analysis can be started, much less completed.
