Are you ready to face your data deamons?
High IT dependency
Situation: Business needs new insights fast
The world around us is changing rapidly, and so is business. Organizations today operate in an era that highly prioritizes data and how it can be used. Novel insights are continuously needed at a fast pace to keep up with competition and the changes around us. While the time to develop new reporting by the IT department can take weeks, or even months.
Staying competitive means understanding your business and the needs of customers in perhaps near real-time. Your business managers are asking for faster data insights to make the best decisions and stay competitive.
Challenge: Developing novel insights from data is taking too long
There is a high dependency on IT and data teams to develop new data & analytics insights. Reducing the overall time to develop a new report is crucial to stay competitive and keep trust in the data & analytics teams.
Often, business complains that it takes too long for IT to deliver insights. The risk of business developing their own shadow IT increases and this should be avoided.
Solution: Modernize your data platform and invest in automation
A modern data platform with a layered architecture is much more performant and can fulfill the current and future (+/- 5 years) data needs. It is often cloud native, integrates data from multiple systems, and is cost efficient to setup and maintain. The speed to deliver new insights is significantly increased.
Data warehouse automation brings additional benefits in terms of speed and flexibility. With the right automation tool, the ELT (or ETL) scripts and the DDL script can be automatically generated. The time needed to deliver new analytics to the business can be reduced by 80%.
Data warehouse automation is often used in combination with Data Vault as a data modelling methodology. For organizations that are subject to a lot of change in data sources, either through changing business or through mergers and acquisitions, the flexibility of Data Vault is significant. Data Vault helps to provide stability and continuity in reporting, while the application landscape is evolving. This also allows a more flexible approach to migration schedules or upgrades in the source systems.
