This tsunami is the “infrastructureless culture” that is being created by cloud data warehousing. It proposes to wipe out and wipe clean everything that we now think we know about data warehouses, data lakes, business intelligence and predictive analytics. This “tsunami in the room” is the movement of the data warehouse, business intelligence and predictive analytics to the cloud. It is big and it is happening now and those who act now are going to ride this wave rather than be overwhelmed by it.” “What it means is that there are going to be changes in our database world that reach beyond just business and technology.

And that has big implications for our corporate cultures. We become ‘infrastructureless’.
