Data becomes active as soon as it is of interest to an organization. Active data are referenced on a regular basis during day-to-day business operations. Over time, this data loses its importance and is accessed less often, gradually losing its business value, and ending with its archival or disposal.
In order to ensure that the full value of data is harnessed, a central data storage (called as the data warehouse) is considered and the development of this initiative is handled by a specific group of people who ensure that data from various business sources are extracted, transformed and loaded into the repository so senior executives and business decision makers are able to make use of the data.
AccelTeam has designed and developed the state of the art “Data Warehouse Lifecycle” which is packed with specific techniques, guidance and advice from initial project planning through deployment and maintenance and support. It appeals to all major roles on a data warehouse project, from project managers to DBAs to data modelers to application developers. Even people who are new to data warehousing can learn how to use it.
The data warehouse life cycle is a roadmap for data warehousing and also Business Intelligence which includes numerous templates, checklist and even samples of the data warehouse life cycle documents that will enable you to jump start the Data warehouse initiative.
