Why data warehouses cannot support hot analytics

Today’s data warehouses – whether traditional, specialized or cloud-based – are good at supporting cold analytics, such as reporting, where query times can take minutes. But they cannot cost-effectively support hot analytics—interactive ad hoc analytics usually performed by larger groups of users against batch or streaming data. Examples of hot analytics include clickstream analytics; service, network and application performance monitoring; and risk analytics.

Data warehouses struggle with hot analytics use cases because they are too slow, unable to scale, or too expensive. Learn how a new class of real-time data platforms overcome these limitations, and how companies implement a “temperature-based” approach to analytics.
