Over the last couple of years, I have discussed on this blog a number of data explosions coming down the line that will have a huge impact on data warehouse implementations now and into the future.  Many of these topics now fall under the umbrella of “big data.”

And Teradata Corporation – who I work for – has purchased the big data analytics provider Aster Data this year.  So we can look forward to a much closer integration of the typical enterprise data warehouse and big data analytics going forward.

Last month Stephen Brobst participated in an IDC webcast, “Big Data Analytics Comes of Age.”  It is always a treat to listen to Stephen talk, and it was really a pleasure to hear Stephen discuss and summarize the impact of many of the topics that have been discussed here on this blog.

I encourage you to take a listen.
