Q:

What does migration to the architected environment mean?

A:

Doug Hackney’s Answer: In the context of heterogeneous BI environments, it refers to migrating a non-architected (stovepipe or silo) BI system, commonly a non-architected data mart, turnkey data mart or turnkey analytical application to the federated BI architecture. Once it is migrated, it can integrate with other heterogeneous BI systems to the extent possible in the implementation and political realities of that site.

Chuck Kelley’s Answer: Most organizations have built many systems without an architected environment, but via a bunch of unorganized (as a whole, although they are quite organized within its system!) duplicate files or databases. Migrating to the architected environment means that there will be an orderly way of storing information and the organization is moving the data toward that orderly way.
