Data Warehousing

Data Warehousing

A data warehouse is step forward in the evolution of your organization’s maturity in the area of Business Intelligence and has become increasingly affordable. A well-built data warehouse adds tremendous value to the data through the business dimensional model and the Extraction Transformation Loading (ETL) process. It makes the data more usable by increasing its validity and allowing for easier reporting, even to the most recent tools like the tabular data model. A well designed data warehouse allows ease-of-use, query performance and maintainability to the Business Intelligence endeavour.


We use the Kimball Methodology of dimensional modelling. Some of its steps are:

  • Business Requirements Definition
  • Dimensional modelling
  • Technical Architecture Design
  • Product Selection & Installation
  • Physical Design
  • ETL Design and Development
  • Data warehouse implementation
