Data Warehouse Development

Data Warehouse Development

We build custom data warehouses to create a centralized repository of integrated data from various sources within an organization. It entails designing, extracting, transforming, and loading data from disparate systems into a single, unified database.

This consolidated data enables businesses to analyze historical and current events, facilitating informed decision-making, trend analysis, and strategic planning. With such a comprehensive view of organizational data, businesses gain a foundation for reporting capabilities, data-driven insights, and business intelligence initiatives.

Major Types of Data Warehouses that
We Build from the Ground Up

We deliver the different types of data warehouses to help organizations make an informed choice aligned with their data management strategies and analytical needs. Below you can overview the categories of data warehouses we generally create to get a grasp of their distinct characteristics, functionalities, and use cases.

Enterprise Data Warehouses (EDW)

These are comprehensive repositories that integrate data from multiple sources across an entire organization.They are designed to handle large volumes of data and support complex queries and analytics across different departments and functions.

Operational Data Stores (ODS)

They focus on real-time or near-real-time data integration and serve as a staging area for data before it is loaded into the data warehouse. Companies can use them for operational reporting, transactional processing, and supporting operational decision-making.

Data Marts

These are smaller, specialized data warehouses that focus on specific departments, business units, or functions within an organization. They are derived from the EDW and are designed for faster query performance and easier access to data for specific analytical purposes.

Analytical Data Warehouses

They are optimized for analytical processing and complex querying, store historical data and aggregate data from various sources to support advanced analytics, data mining, and predictive modeling. Companies can use them for in-depth analysis and reporting for strategic decision-making and business intelligence.

Cloud Data Warehouses

They are hosted on cloud platforms, eliminating the need for on-premises hardware and maintenance and providing on-demand resources for storing and analyzing data. They support distributed processing for handling large volumes of data and concurrent user queries.

Virtual Data Warehouses

They provide a logical layer that integrates data from disparate sources virtually, without physically moving or replicating data. Companies can leverage a unified view of data across different systems and platforms, enabling organizations to leverage existing data sources and infrastructure.

Data Governance

We establish policies, procedures, and standards for data management, ensuring data security, compliance, and alignment with business objectives.

Data Virtualization

With data virtualization, we enable users to access and query data from various sources without physically moving or consolidating the data, improving agility and reducing data redundancy.

Infrastructure of our Data Warehouses Step by Step

Data warehouses that we develop consist of several key components that work together to store, manage, and analyze data efficiently. Let’s overview how they contribute to business data orchestration.

ETL (Extract, Transform, Load)

We set up extracting data from various sources, transforming it into a consistent format, and loading it into the data warehouse. Extraction involves retrieving data from source systems, transformation involves cleaning, integrating, and enriching the data, while loading involves inserting it into the warehouse.

Data Storage

We develop physical or virtual repositories where the structured, semi-structured, or unstructured data is stored. It often involves relational databases, columnar databases, or distributed file systems optimized for analytical queries.

Data Modeling

Our team designs the structure of the data warehouse, including defining tables, columns, relationships, and constraints. Dimensional modeling and star schema are common techniques used to organize data for efficient querying and analysis.

Metadata Repository

We create a repository that stores metadata, which provides information about the data stored in the warehouse. It includes details such as data definitions, data lineage, data quality rules, and data transformation logic, aiding in data governance and management.

Query and Analysis Tools

We implement query and analysis tools that provide interfaces for users to interact with the data warehouse, query the data, and generate reports and visualizations. These tools may offer features such as ad-hoc querying, OLAP (Online Analytical Processing), and data visualization.

Data Access Layer

Our team provides APIs, connectors, or interfaces for accessing data stored in the warehouse. It enables integration with external applications, BI tools, and analytics platforms, allowing users to retrieve and manipulate data for analysis and reporting.

Data Transformation Services

We arrange various transformations on the data as part of the custom ETL pipeline. This includes tasks such as data cleansing, aggregation, normalization, and enrichment, ensuring that the data is accurate, consistent, and suitable for analysis.

Security and Access Control

Our team implements security and access control mechanisms to enforce data privacy, integrity, and confidentiality within the data warehouse. This includes authentication, authorization, encryption, and auditing features to protect sensitive data and ensure compliance with regulations.
