Increasingly when Senturus is asked to design a CPM solution, we are asked about data warehousing. Operational systems are poorly suited for reporting, analytics and decision-making support. The purpose of these systems is to pull data IN. The problems arise when attempting to take data OUT. Data is stored in tens of thousands of tables across different data stores that don’t use the same table names. The process is often a time-consuming manual one that creates a bottleneck for decision makers as they wait for IT to locate and extract all this data.
Senturus dimensional modeling specialists are masters at navigating the complexities of every type of data store. We transform these myriad repositories of valuable data into what we like to call "One Version of the Truth" – a pragmatically designed, business-oriented warehouse of company data that offers usable information in real time to every department in the organization.
A Senturus designed data warehouse:
- Is a high impact solution, delivered in a matter of months
- Creates conforming dimensions between each department’s stored data for improved reporting efficiencies and operational visibility
- Provides data in such a way that departments can still roll up information in their own way
- Automates reporting, providing critical data while it’s current and actionable
With a Senturus data warehouse in place, your company benefits from the tremendous efficiencies of a single, powerful reference point for data extraction. Your teams are empowered with highly relevant reports delivered on time, helping the organization to make better decisions and in the process freeing up IT to return to their rightful place as champions of data integrity.
