In the old days of analytics, engineers would spend hours fine-tuning the database to optimize query times for high-value workloads. The result was highly efficient analysis on-prem. Then along came the cloud with its remarkable scalaility. Need more compute? No problem! But with hardware and software often bundled, there's no incentive for that bespoke engineering. And up go the costs!

That's why some organizations are repatriating analytic workloads from the cloud. According to one CTO, for the price they were paying in the cloud, “I could re-buy the hardware every three months.” How prevalent is this? Ceck out this episode of DM Radio to find out! Host @eric_kavanagh will interview Paige Roperts of OpenText Vertica, and Eugene Burke of Digital Strategies Group. They'll discuss the pros and cons of cloud vs on-prem, and why most solutions will remain hybrid for years to come.
