This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar.Understand more

While centralized integration of data for analysis and reporting remains a good strategy, traditional Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) initiatives have a higher than 50% failure rate. Big up-front data modeling results in overbuilt warehouses that take years to deliver and are expensive to maintain. We are placing these old-style EDWs and techniques on hold in this edition of the radar. Instead, we advocate evolving towards an EDW. Test and learn by building small, valuable increments that are frequently released to production. Nontraditional tools and techniques can help, for example using a Data Vault schema design or even a NoSQL document store such as HDFS.
Thoughtworks acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land where we work and live, and their continued connection to Country. We pay our respects to Elders past and present. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples were the world's first scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
As a company, we invite Thoughtworkers to be actively engaged in advancing reconciliation and strengthen their solidarity with the First Peoples of Australia. Since 2019, we have been working with Reconciliation Australia to formalize our commitment and take meaningful action to advance reconciliation. We invite you to review our Reconciliation Action Plan.
