What is Project Management?

   Formalized project management is critical to the success of any data warehouse project. Data warehouse projects that are implemented without formal project management principles are more likely to experience issues with factors such as budget, deliverables, and overall satisfaction in customer experience than those that used a formal project management methodology. Because of the unique requirements of data warehousing, methodologies must be be able to adapt to this complex environment.
Innovative Logic's The RapiMart Methodology (RMM ) is a project management methodology specifically developed for data warehousing and is designed to effectively and efficiently guide you through planning and execution of a data warehouse project.

   The RapiMart Methodology supports all aspects of the implementation of a warehouse – from project charter through deployment through post-project review. It does this through a series of templates that prompt users through each step and are self-documenting. Several areas of RMM include:

   • Specific processes for data warehouse tasks – such as ETL, BI, Data Quality and more
   • Detailed work breakdown structure specifically for data warehousing
   • Process-based approach that aligns all technical activity with a business case
   • Compliant with SEI 's (Software Engineering Institute) Key Process Indicator (KPI), Key Process Area (KPA) and the Capability Maturity Model (CMM) areas from Carnegie Mellon University
   • Uses the project management practices espoused by PMI (Project Management Institute) – which are ISO 9001 compliant and consistent with SEI 's principals
Why is Project Management Important?
Today's next-generation data warehouses are being built with a clear goal: to maximize the power of information. Whether it is for customer relationship management, supply chain, or understanding corporate data – project management is essential for the overall health of the project. Establishing clear, written project scope, requirements and change control procedures at the beginning of a project are some of the best ways to lower project risk and ensure the best technical solution is being created to address the correct business problem.

What is the Value of Project Management?


   With proper planning, successful data warehouse projects will have a positive impact on a company's bottom line. From understanding the business benefit of each iterative deliverable within the warehouse, project management facilitates the ease of implementation and delivery of the business requirements. Project management that follows an iterative deployment process will lower overall project risk and maximize the opportunity to examine progress and provide feedback on future directions.
