The High Cost of Hand Coding

Why Intelligent, Automated and Modern Cloud Data Management Matters Now More Than Ever

Published February 2021


Today, organizations are investing heavily in new cloud-based processes, platforms, and environments in order to achieve benefits like scalability, elasticity, agility, and cost efficiencies. At the same time, organizations also understand that data is foundational to successful digital transformation, and cannot be an afterthought.

As these trends converge, IT departments are tasked with helping the business become cloud ready or cloud first, specifically as they modernize analytics. Enterprises are modernizing or standing up new data warehouses and data lakes in the cloud, or what they are starting to refer to as a lakehouse. In one cloud data platform, you have a combined solution for both historical and predictive analytics.

However, when it comes to managing the data to accelerate time to value and deliver ROI with an investment in cloud data warehouses, data lakes, and lakehouses, the typical approach that IT departments take can reap significant implications–such as increased cost, project overruns, and maintenance complexity–wiping out any benefits of modernizing analytics in the cloud.

This white paper is intended to provide IT leaders guidance on implementing an intelligent, automated data management solution versus spending time building custom hand-coded solutions.
