Data Warehouse Automation (DWA) and Enterprise Database Design Patterns - DAMA September Chapter Meeting

Standard Insurance Center Auditorium
900 SW 5th Avenue
Portland, Oregon 97204, United States (map)



Why do Enterprise Data Warehouses take so long, cost so much and too often cannot answer my questions?

An Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) is a critical factor in getting a leg up on the competition. Organizations invest millions of dollars and thousands of person hours designing, implementing and maintaining their EDW. Far too often, those responsible for the EDW are disappointed that the EDW does not provide a competitive advantage and costs to maintain it keep climbing.

This presentation will explore the reasons why so many EDW implementations don't live up to expectations. We will also discuss some ways to have a high probability of success in implementing an EDW at a low initial cost and a low total cost of ownership (TCO) through Data Warehouse Automation (DWA) technology. We will discuss:

  • How DWA significantly reduces time and cost, while at the same time increasing quality and user satisfaction
  • Identify the industry leaders
  • Discuss how DWA by itself does not necessarily guarantee success
  • Discuss how Enterprise Database Design Patterns coupled with DWA help ensure success

We will close with a demo of how DWA technology works by building a data mart for Sales with slowly changing dimensions and incremental loading, generating the data warehouse relational tables as well as cubes, populating the data warehouse and cubes and running some reports
