data warehouse vs data feed

Avatar

Level 2

Hello,

 

In my company we've been through many iterations of our ETL pipeline using the DW extract from Adobe Analytics. Most recently, Adobe representatives have told us we should start using the Data Feed method for our ETL instead.

I asked support directly if they could share any technical documentation that would support the recommendation they made and didn't receive a response.

I guess I am looking to understand what are the use cases for each method and why Data Feeds is the recommended method of extraction for ETL.

Thanks,

Ana

Basic difference between Data Warehouse and Data Feed is that DWH send processed data while Data Feed files has raw/unprocessed data. It depends on your business use case which one you would want to use.

Hi, I've seen this documentation before. This is not what I am asking. To make it super clear: What are the use cases of the DW vs Data Feed?

I understand that. I am interested in knowing why the Adobe team is suggesting to use Data Feeds vs DW for our ETL. Is that the standard?

That is not a standard and solution divided is based on the business requirement. If you can share more details on your business case I can share my comments over the solution.

your statements contradicts with adobe docs. 

"Introduction to data warehouse" >> The data warehouse request tool in Adobe Analytics gives you access to query the raw data

Did you get to the bottom of this?

From the thread it looks you didn't even though the answer is tagged as accepted solution. Is it?

I also had a similar issue and later found this Adobe documentation.


This page compares various Adobe Analytics products: Analysis Workspace, Report Builder, Data Warehouse, Data Feeds, and Analytics API 2.0.
