Does ETL and DWH Implementation Have to be Complicated?
If your business has a handle on all of its data and can easily extract, transform, load (ETL) and manage that data, and easily access data from within data warehouses (DWH), then your organization is rare, indeed!
Today, there is more data than ever, hidden in every corner of the business and, easy access to that data and the ability to manipulate, reduce, clean and manage that data, is mandatory if your company wants to leverage its data to make good decisions and to accurately plan and forecast.
Every business faces the challenge of managing and using data in a way that is meaningful, accurate and easy for users. To meet objectives, plan strategies and analyze information, the average enterprise must juggle best-of-breed, legacy systems, and many other data repositories that sometimes seem to hide data from even the most gifted analysts and IT staff members.
To tame those diverse and disparate data sources and integrate data into a central data mart or data warehouse can seem like a daunting task but with the right experience and skill, your enterprise can organize, manage, monitor and analyze internal and external data from all corners of the organization.
If your organization does not yet have a data extraction, transformation and loading (ETL) environment, or a data warehouse, then you are at risk for losing your market advantage. Information is power and your competitors know that. An ETL Consultant and Data Warehousing Consulting services can help you implement a strategy or upgrade an existing environment to better meet your needs today and in the future.
