AGILE DATA WAREHOUSE & BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE FROM DATAVAULT

DEVELOP YOUR IN-HOUSE CAPABILITY TO BUILD AND MANAGE YOUR OWN AGILE DATA WAREHOUSE

We have a complete approach to designing and building an Agile Data Warehouse and Big Data solution. The Data Vault method is better, faster and cheaper than traditional techniques.

We help our customers to develop the skills to build and operate their own agile Data Warehouse.

 

Many established businesses have evolved to run several data warehouse systems in parallel – with a mix of technologies, overlapping data and differing service levels. Their data warehouse projects become ever more complex, costly and time-consuming; they overrun or fail; and some requirements can be impossible to deliver at all or may require yet another data warehouse to be built, exacerbating the problem.

IT_CIRCLE_DUO
  • CIO / HEAD OF I.T

    • Do you want to improve the service offered by your Data Warehouse team while reducing operating costs?
    • Do you want to reduce the architectural complexity of your Data Warehouse systems and have the option of moving them to the cloud?
    • Do you want your Data Warehouse team to implement Agile practices – such as test-driven development, continuous integration and delivery?
    • Can you have a Data Warehouse up and running in weeks rather than months?
    • Is it difficult to develop a business case to modernise your data warehouse architecture – even though it is clearly the right thing to do?

DPO_CIRCLE_DUO
  • BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE MANAGER

    • Do you want a Data Warehouse that helps rather than hinders you to get through your workload?
    • Are you able to understand the origin and integrity of data and trace issues back to the source?
    • Do you want to consolidate multiple data warehouses without a risky big bang migration?
    • Do you want to use the latest analytics tools with existing data to increase accuracy and insight?
    • Do you want a data warehouse architecture that helps you clearly explain to the business the services you provide and the value you add?

FASTER

An agile development approach delivers visibility and adaptability much earlier in the project, reducing project risk whilst clearly monitoring and measuring value against the business goals.

BETTER

We use a highly effective approach to architecture and data modelling that focuses on deriving insight from data.

CHEAPER

Having a faster project with a small highly skilled team reduces project costs. Wherever possible, the re-use of existing investments combined with cloud based tools reduces investment overheads.

Traditional data warehouse projects have struggled to keep up with the ever-increasing demand for data driven solutions. They are producing complex, costly, and inflexible systems that have become obstacles rather than solutions to accessing and analysing all your data.  Most Big Data platforms are merely toolkits that require massive resources to build and maintain. They are complex, requiring specialized skills, and simply weren’t designed for agile Data Warehousing.

UNDERPIN BUSINESS GOALS

We believe projects must align with the strategic objectives of the business from the outset and that there must be a laser focus upon achieving, measuring and articulating value.

REDUCE CODING

We minimise the coding required and maximise re-use through use of patterns and pre-configuration reducing delivery times and maintenance costs.

LOWER RISK

An incremental approach to build greatly reduces the risk associated with developing a new Data Warehouse.

Our full stack method helps our clients to maximise their investment in Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence.  We work with clients throughout the life-cycle of projects from helping with strategic alignment and business cases through design, implementation, dev-ops and support.  Strong data governance, agile project management adapted for warehouse solutions and Data Vault design underpin this.  Our approach extends the tried and tested modelling techniques of American Data Warehouse guru Dan Lindstedt as outlined in his book “Building a Scalable Data Warehouse with Data Vault 2.0™”.

ADAPTABILITY

Easily adapts to a changing business environment.

USABILITY

Increases usability by business users because it is modelled after the business domain.

FUTURE PROOFING

New data sources can be added without impacting the existing design.

Data Vault simplifies the design complexities of Data Warehousing by streamlining the data ingestion process, removing the requirement to cleanse data up-front.  It puts the focus on the real problem instead of programming around it, easily allowing the addition of new data sources without disruption to existing schemas.

 

Our clients also benefit from services around: Data Warehouse Business Case Design, Fact Base Investigation, Data Quality Improvement, Business Intelligence Strategy, Governance Reviews, Service Models and bespoke training.

If you are looking for expertise in business intelligence and analytics then you either choose a big consultancy with a small department that does business intelligence work, where you are paying for the brand, or you seek out real experts in boutique consultancies.
