In the mid 90s, data warehousing might have meant “using an Oracle database.” Today, it means a wide variety of things. You could be stitching together a big data pipeline using Kafka, Hadoop, and Spark. You could be using managed tools like BigQuery from Google.

How did we get from the simple days of Oracle databases to the wealth of options available today? Mark Rittman writes and podcasts about data engineering and data warehousing on his site Drill to Detail. Today, we explore the past, present, and future of data warehousing and touch on many of the trends that have been explored in recent episodes of Software Engineering Daily.
