Data warehousing used to be simple. If you wanted to stockpile and organize your data for analytics purposes, you spun up an extra database instance of whatever database platform your organization standardized on, connected your ETL tool of choice, modeled the data, wrote a few ETL routines, and set up regular refreshes.
