Description

The legacy estate compromised 2 competitive Data Warehouses,
impacting data quality and spiraling maintenance costs. The divergent Data Warehouses and complex data integration patterns resulted in conflicting and contradictory information impacting reliable decision making, business strategy, and data confidence.

Elait contributed to the architecture of the new Data Warehouse, provided technical standards and best practices, built Data Warehouse automation & leveraged MSBI Accelerait as part of implementation This helped present data consistently and accurately, resulting in improved decision making, reduced potential loss of revenue and regulatory risk.

Challenge

Complex and heterogenous Data Warehouse-based architecture had become difficult & error prone to manage, causing data duplication, overly complex data integration patterns leading to inconsistent information. This impacted not only reliable decision making but also business strategy and data confidence.

Lack of best practices in Data Warehouse triggered major challenges related to data quality, availability & disaster recovery. This further impacted corporate assurance and created business continuity risks. Maintenance efforts increased the total cost of ownership.

Unavailability of fast, reliable data impacted ROI from marketing campaigns & raised the risk of regulatory non-compliance with attendant financial penalties.

The customer wanted a solution that will give easy access to reliable, consistent information to facilitate reliable decision-making, eliminate the risk of regulatory non-compliance, and enable a low TCO.

Solution

Elait reviewed the legacy Data Warehouses, created a contemporary Data Warehouse architecture by providing technical standards and best practices for the new Data Warehouse, managing the client team, and building Data Warehouse automation on the MSBI platform leveraging proprietary framework MSBI Accelerait.

Elait expedited delivery to the new architecture using automation and agile methodology. Ease of maintenance was achieved by implementing consistent patterns, reconciliation, auditing, error handling, monitoring & alerting.

Properly defined architecture resulted in performance improvements and following industry best practices ensured data quality, data governance improvements.

Outcome

The new Data Warehouse architecture assured a single version of the truth, allowing improved decision making and strategizing business. This reduced the potential for reputational damage, regulatory compliance exposure (with the potential for fines and threat to license), and customer loss.

On-time data delivery to applications allowed campaigns to be run on time with improved ROI, minimizing potential loss of revenue. Reduced incident support effort for CRM and Data Management teams allowed them to focus on their core.
