THE BENEFIT OF SPEED IN DATA WAREHOUSING
Because of the increasing use of selfservice BI solutions, the business is setting higher and higher standards on the availability of data. Building data warehouses (DWH) faster will therefore contribute to business value immediately. But reducing this time to delivery is a challenge. The current business dynamics have resulted in enormous growth in the volume and complexity of data. Future-oriented organisations need to be able to build and maintain DWHs which are flexible enough to keep up with the growth and complexity of data, while at the same time making analyses possible to support decision making both today and in the future. Your teams are required to supply new data under a lot of time pressure. This requires a new, innovative approach.
These are the issues we often encounter in datawarehousing:
- Manually designed processes like ETL have limited documentation, making them difficult to understand and maintain. The knowledge about how they were designed is often no longer available.
- Even when tools are used they’re usually a collection of technical solutions that aren’t integrated.
- The existing DWH is technically complex and inflexible, leading to high TCO.
- It’s difficult and time-consuming to convert an existing DWH to a new DWH-model like DataVault.
