There is hardly any business area that is not affected by the Big Data wave, but customers struggle with a broad adoption due to the complexity of the solutions and lack of guidance from trusted suppliers.

Most of the enterprise big data projects are standalone silos with limited link into corporate structure. But as the technology gets more and more enterprise ready it is vital to connect them with corporate data governed e.g. in a data warehouse. It can be expected that architectures will need to combine big data systems with core business applications. Therefore data warehousing technology is under pressure to integrate efficiently with the Big Data scenarios and to provide features and functions to handle this new data and transform it into value.
