Data Warehouse Automation Platforms Help Close The Data-To-Insight Gap

Seven DWA Vendors Bring Agility To The Entire BI/Analytics Development Life Cycle

April 24, 2019


Why Read This Report

Self-service business intelligence (BI), analytics, and data preparation platforms only partially support Agile development of BI applications. Parts of the process, like data modeling, still follow a less flexible waterfall development life cycle. In this report, application development and delivery (AD&D) pros will learn about data warehouse automation (DWA) vendors that bring Agile options to all phases of BI/analytics application development. These platforms facilitate shorter development cycles and require fewer human resources with specialized data modeling skills. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and updates it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy. We revised this edition to factor in new data and examples.
