Five Steps to Maximize the Value of Your Data Warehouse Investment:
Architecting Data Warehouse Infrastructures for Improved Total Cost of Ownership
Date Held: Thursday April 28, 2005
Duration: 1 hour

The challenge in today's data warehousing is to minimize costs while maximizing value to the organization. While many organizations have gained many benefits from their data warehouse they may not have fully examined how to manage and reduce their operational costs. A comprehensive view of Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) can help tailor an optimal, open data warehouse architecture and configuration -- making the project more successful and reducing costs. A TCO methodology can also provide justification to help secure funds for continued improvement of your data warehouse investment. By employing TCO to assess existing or new DW investments, IT organizations can ensure they have been financially prudent and have applied basic business principles to their data warehouse.

Attendees will learn:

  • What role Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) plays in Data Warehousing (DW)
  • How to Gain the Most Value from your DW Investments
  • How to Use TCO Methodology via Specific Examples
  • Five Steps to Maximize the Value of your DW Investment
