A data warehouse is a centralised repository of integrated data from various disparate sources usually cleaned and standardised for the purposes of business reporting and analysis. The data flows into a data warehouse from a variety of sources, such as transactional systems, relational databases, point-of-sale systems, and business applications, generally on a regular cadence.
A data warehouse can be designed to host structured data like database tables, excel spreadsheets as well as semi-structured data in the form of XML files and webpages. A data warehouse hosts large amounts of such information and provides users with easy and efficient access to a wealth of historical data, catering to data analytics and the reporting needs of a business.

Benefits of cloud data warehousing
A cloud data warehouse is a unified, cloud-based data warehousing solution hosted and managed on the cloud, giving the organisations the ability to scale, compute, and store at a faster speed and lower cost.
Efficient infrastructure deployment without excessive up-front costs and reduced maintenance cost with consumption-based costing model
The elastic resources of the cloud make it much faster and less expensive for scaling the resource up/down as per the business requirements.
The data protection and security of cloud data warehouses are efficiently managed by the cloud providers. The cloud-based disaster recovery options are more reliable and cost effective.
A cloud-based data warehouse solution offers significantly faster querying and processing capabilities than its on-premises counterparts.
Cloud data warehouses can be designed to accommodate a wide range of data formats from a multitude of sources and at various frequencies with ease.

Yes, BCN can provide Data Warehousing Services for on-premises infrastructure. As a cloud-first company, BCN support and emphasise the adoption of cloud computing technologies as the primary means of delivering data warehousing services, but our expertise spans to on-premises infrastructure.
With traditional or on-premises data warehouses the organisation has total control and total responsibility over the tech stack and data. Traditional data warehouses are expensive to scale and cannot efficiently manage fluctuating workloads and data volumes. They do not offer flexibility in handling raw, unstructured, or complex data and do not cater to the evolving data-analysis use cases.
Cloud data warehouses offers on-demand scalability, cost efficiency, security and availability with faster deployment, better performance, analytics, and access to business intelligence. It addresses the challenges the challenges of scalability, elasticity, data variety, data latency, adaptability, data silos, and data science compatibility faced by in traditional data warehouses.
Migrating an on-premises data warehouse to the cloud can help organisations modernize their data warehouses with high speed, security, scalability, cost savings and performance. The two commonly used migration strategies are:
The Lift and Shift Technique: Migration of the existing data setup unchanged to the cloud platform. This strategy works well for minimizing risk and reducing the time associated with migrating.
The Redesign Strategy: Re-architect the existing data setup with cloud native services to further scale and optimize for cloud architectures. This strategy will require holistic planning, time, and effort to rebuild the existing setup into a modern, adaptable, and future-proofed data platform.
