Conclusions and Next Steps
Well we are almost finished – just a few pages more of suffering. But if you have arrived then here maybe you are not suffering so much; so we are really pleased that you are reading these pages. We haven’t done it so badly… But now that we have arrived at this point, what more can we do? This should be the question after you have completed successfully the implementation of your BI system with basic analysis of data located in your database, accessed from your BI system in a multiple environment that can be located fully or partially in the cloud. We expect you to have followed the book following also the examples, downloading and installing the proposed software (and maybe other options that you have heard about, especially for the BI front end there are multiple options with free versions of commercial tools), learning about the different tools while you play following our instructions so you can finalize this book having at least the initial Proof of Concept done. Of course we are aware that if you have read this book from end to end while testing things, you won’t have a productive multienvironment or all your servers in cloud; we understand that the first option for this kind of test is just a laptop to install all the required components to evaluate them.
