AWS re:Invent 2016: Migrating Your Data Warehouse to Amazon Redshift (DAT202)

Published on Dec 07, 2016

Amazon Redshift is a fast, simple, cost-effective data warehousing solution, and in this session, we look at the tools and techniques you can use to migrate your existing data warehouse to Amazon Redshift. We will then present a case study on Scholastic’s migration to Amazon Redshift. Scholastic, a large 100-year-old publishing company, was running their business with older, on-premise, data warehousing and analytics solutions, which could not keep up with business needs and were expensive. Scholastic also needed to include new capabilities like streaming data and real time analytics. Scholastic migrated to Amazon Redshift, and achieved agility and faster time to insight while dramatically reducing costs. In this session, Scholastic will discuss how they achieved this, including options considered, technical architecture implemented, results, and lessons learned.
