A data warehouse is a single repository of your entire organisation’s IT-based data. It is designed for optimum decision support and as the solid foundation for rapid planning and modelling cycles which help your organisation to gain strategic advantage through Business Intelligence and Business Analytics.
Data warehousing is a well established technique which overcomes the limitations of data held by separate and scattered IT systems – in accounting, HR, manufacturing, sales, etc. A single data warehouse spans all these systems, using each as a valuable data source to provide your organisation with a single, holistic view of its data.
ETL tools (Extract/Transform/Load) play a major part in effective data warehouses, providing the all-important link between the data in the disparate systems underneath and its preferred representation in the data warehouse for onward use. Data is validated and cleansed in every transfer, bi-directionally, maintaining the integrity of data in the warehouse as well as data used by individual/local systems.
