Introduction

Today, cloud data warehouse (CDW) solutions are changing the way we deliver modern analytics. They can provision any size data warehouse in minutes, autotune queries, scale resources such as compute and storage based on demand, and automatically upgrade to the latest version. To address the growing need for more integrated, real-time, and self-service analytics, CDW vendors continue to focus on native integration with data lakes and object stores; self-service to simplify access and administration for larger and more complex warehouses; and advanced capabilities on parallel processing, compression, partitioning, indexing, query optimization, and dynamic resource provisioning. The most common CDW use cases include customer analytics, AI/machine learning (ML)- based analytics, vertical-specific analytics, and real-time analytics.
