The data available to an organisation is exploding in volume, as both internal and external sources grow in number and size. Organisations need to tame big data to continue to gain insight and to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the untapped information.
IMGROUP’s extensive Data Warehousing services deliver robust ETL and Data Warehouse platforms in which data is acquired, integrated, enhanced and made available to support business decisions across an organisation. Solutions that can approach near real-time capture are extensible to flex with the evolving data and organisation environment as more employees are mandated to gain greater insight of their business from its data.
Where many organisations have already been through at least one iteration of getting it right, IMGROUP brings the best practices and experience of over 100 unique implementations during the last decade.
IMGROUP has captured much of this knowledge in delivering Data Warehouse platforms in the form of its PIMS Methodology, templates and framework architectures that reduce project risk and enable the accelerated delivery of a quality solution.
IMGROUP also encourages knowledge transfer to ensure an organisation can continue to maintain and grow the influence of a data warehouse on the business.
Benefits of a Data Warehouse
Maintain data history, even if the source transaction systems do not
Integrate data from multiple source systems, enabling a central view across the enterprise. This is particularly valuable when the organisation has grown by merger
Improve data, by providing consistent codes and descriptions, flagging or even fixing bad data
Provide a single common data model for all data of interest regardless of the data's source
Restructure the data so that it makes sense to the business users
Restructure the data so that it delivers excellent query performance, even for complex analytic queries, without impacting the operational systems
Add value to operational business applications, notably customer relationship management (CRM) systems
A single consistent repository of data available for the increasing demands of the business
Ensures a solution is able to grow and scale with the business need
Reduces implementation risks through best practices, methods and architectures
A phased approach drives incremental benefits continually throughout the programme life and remains focused on enabling increased business value.
