Cloud adoption is unstoppable, but it hasn’t just gone mainstream - it’s gone multi-cloud. More than half (55%) of organizations are currently using multiple public clouds, with 21% saying they use three or more, according to a 2020 survey from IDG. Gartner estimates that by 2022, 75% of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform.
The promise of performance, scalability, and agility have been the underpinnings for organizations moving their data warehouses to the cloud to support virtually unlimited users and workloads. Though cloud is delivering on its promise with near-zero maintenance, and unlimited performance at scale, having one cloud data warehouse to rule them all isn’t the reality for most businesses. After all, data is the new oil, and no company wants to have one of their most precious commodities locked into a single vendor.
And while data has always held the answers business users need, cloud data warehouses are not where they are looking for them. Despite the mass migration of data to the cloud, it’s still locked away in a digital drawer. The “cloudiness” of that data drawer does nothing to make it more accessible to the mainstream workers within an organization. The reality is that up to 73% of data continues to go unused for analytics. Today’s fast-changing circumstances require insights into all aspects of how the organization is performing and unparalleled instant access to sales, inventory, financial and other data to adjust strategies on the fly.
Cloud data warehouses have provided the impetus to enterprise-wide digital transformation. The real payoff of that investment comes when you can finally cross the chasm of unlocking the data drawer and empower all frontline workers needing to make data-driven decisions.

“Moving to the cloud and putting the cloud to work are often two different things. That’s why the ease of integrating ThoughtSpot with our existing AWS based data lakes was so important. As our business and our data volumes continued to grow, we really needed a platform that would scale as we did, while also giving our business users faster and higher value-add insights to make informed decisions at the speed of business.” - Callie Cobbs, Sr. Lead Analyst, Chick-fil-A
