Eliminate ETL with associative front-end tools
Every company has a handful of “data cowboys” demanding direct access to the records within the data warehouse. Yet how can you provide such uncontrolled mixed use and still avoid the chaos of data contention, unsanctioned BI apps, and multiple versions of the truth?
Ceregenics has pioneered mixing associative query utilities into the standard DW/BI tool mix to make self-service data work. These utilities help users infer source data models with minimal DW/BI assistance. We also configure them so that everyone in the organization knows their output provides only “provisional data.” And then we couple them with replication provided by change data capture products to avoid data contention.
Ceregenics’ solutions architects can describe for you how this approach leads to a double win for DW/BI: it supports the business’ pressing need for data while still maintaining a role for an industrial-strength data warehouse that the company will appreciate.
