To stay competitive and gain an edge, you’ve made the decision to move your data warehouse to the cloud so that the company can benefit from the latest business analytics innovation and agility available in cloud data warehouses.

More often, the familiar mantra of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is followed.
Given the tangled nature of enterprise data warehouses, the replatforming journey is far from straightforward. Considerations for a replatforming project include ensuring predictable costs for the new data warehouse, leveraging storage and compute insights to optimize your workload and right-size it for the cloud, providing uninterrupted service for your users, and more. It requires planning, knowledge, and insights to ensure a successful execution.
