Data Warehouse Automation and Why it is Important for Your BI Project

Data Warehouse Automation Technology

Data Warehouse Automation solves a great number of the problems of Data Warehouses development. Traditional data warehouses are brittle, hand-coded, complex and expensive. BIReady doesn’t get rid of the complexity; it automates it, getting rid of the expensive hand- coded solutions that take too long to develop. BIReady’s automated technology is model-driven, which gives you the power to turn your source data’s meta-data into the perfect data warehouse design for your business. This puts your Model-driven Data Warehouse fully under your control. Changes to the model are implemented automatically, and you can grow and adapt your Data Warehouse at the speed of your business. You can design, generate, adapt - without limits.

Why has Data Warehouse Automation become so important?

Today’s business cannot afford to wait for vital information. Dependence on slow, costly, manual data warehouse development using ETL tools can no longer be tolerated. Processes that have evolved to become standardised and repeatable can be made generic and automated. The frontiers of BI tools were pushed back when reporting tools became generic – from that moment, you no longer had to build the equivalent of Cognos, Business Objects or the Microsoft BI stack by hand. In the same way, the underlying Data Warehouse and star-schema Data Marts have followed suit. With BIReady, the Data Warehouse architecture that feeds your BI tools is now automated, enforcing best-practices, simplifying the processes, while driving down cost and development time. Put simply, BIReady is a smarter, faster, better, cheaper way to build data warehouses.

Where does Data Warehouse Automation add value to your organisation?

Automation solves several problems with traditional Data Warehouse development, both technical and commercial:- Building a new Data Warehouse Data Warehouses are incredibly expensive to build by hand. However, BIReady completes the same work throughout the entire solution straight from your Business Information Model, and does so with a few clicks. You can import your data source model from your favorite CASE/Modelling tool such as ERWin, reverse-engineer an existing database, or build the model directly in BIReady. BIReady generates and executes all the necessary ETL code while giving you total control over the process – to tweak and adapt the code for any organisation-specific customisations. Data Marts can be designed and adapted using BIReady’s wizard interface. Loading is scheduled and customised with ease. BIReady works with all major database platforms including SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, Teradata, Netezza and even MySQL. Changes to an existing Data Warehouse As if building a Data Warehouse by hand wasn’t expensive enough, an even bigger shock to most organisations is the cost of change. Since current Data Warehouse technology stacks require tight coupling of the various dependent components between the source systems and the final reports, change requests come with a high price tag. Adapting an existing report in order to add a new dimension for drill-down has implications for Data Mart redesign, additional scope for the normalised Data Warehouse that feeds it, the ETL back to the source systems, the handling of history and data warehouse keys and logging. Additional Change-data Capture code has to be implemented. Each of these changes must be managed carefully through analysis, implementation, testing and transition to the production reporting environment. Additional complexity is introduced when new developers make changes to an existing Data Warehouse - different coding styles, and variations in adherence to best- practices often create a large impact on maintainability. All this is a thing of the past with BIReady. Changes are quick and easy to manage - even to an already-live data warehouse environment. Your users experience fast, dependable updates with no interruptions to their flow of data. Prototyping BIReady is extremely powerful for prototyping. With the Data Shop functionality, BIReady creates Excel Pivot tables on the fly based on the BIReady Data Warehouse. This way, data, as a sample report, can be shown to business users in minutes. Very valuable to really understand the information requirements immediately.
