>> PLANNING / EXECUTION
What is a Data Warehouse?
The definition of a data warehouse
has taken on many meanings and interpretations
throughout the years. But at its core, a data
warehouse represents a consolidated view of an
entity's data – an integration point for
all sources into one vision of the organization.
The goal of a data warehouse is to turn data into
something meaningful through integration, cleansing,
standardizing and improving the data from its
original source. This allows companies and organizations
to make better decisions about their direction
and status of their business.
Why is Data Warehouse
Planning and Execution Important?
A data warehouse project is
like few others, it is labyrinth in its proportions.
It is therefore critical that proper planning
and project management techniques be employed
when a data warehouse project is launched. It
is also important to continue to implement project
management principles throughout the lifecycle
of the project. Innovative
Logic Inc. has a proven
methodology, The RapiMart Methodology (RMM ).
It is designed to effectively and efficiently
guide you through the planning and execution of
a data warehouse project.

its entirety or from an individual process/template
perspective. Some of the offerings include:
Active templates that describe purpose, recommended
content, sample sections and how they relate to
other RMM processes

such as ETL, BI and Data Quality
