The Tsunami in the Room Ok, “tsunami in the room” is a horrible mixed metaphor but this is big. Really big. It’s not just an elephant in the room that everyone sees, nobody mentions and is making everyone uncomfortable.
This is a tsunami in the room. It’s not even a tsunami that is off the coast that you can see coming if you look in the right direction. This tsunami is here. 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.
