The IT landscape in organisations is getting more and more fragmented with lots of point solution coming into the picture such as on-premise or cloud solutions and also the files & reports that are floating around. That’s were Data warehouse adds value by providing a unified view of the business. and furthering those insights with analysis and reporting.
Organisations handsomely invest in analysis of their data, there may be multiple analytics/visualisation tools being used in an organisation across different departments. A well thought data governance and data warehousing strategy helps the enterprises to maximise the return on their investments and extract the benefits for a longer term.
Through our Data warehousing services, our objective is to allow decision makers to extract information from disparate sources be it RDBMS, Data Marts, APIs, etc. Bring all this data into a single place and thereafter do all your business transformation including the incorporation of business rules, rule-driven data cleaning, data standardisation and then load it into a cleaned data warehouse which is available for reporting, your advanced analytics needs. It is available to end users so a report can be created over it or your data analyst can directly query this system (a single source) and run statistical models against it.
Polestar has got a team of experts who have worked on sophisticated and complex enterprise-level data warehouse where the volume, variety and velocity were all high. We created a data warehouse that not only optimised for their current needs but was also scalable and flexible.
Our in-house ETL framework created on top of SSIS gives you a head start and saves time on creating the framework for Auditing, Logging & Exception handling.
Data Acquisition & Integration
Data is produced across departments in any organisation. The dispersed data is saved in a variety of formats. So, a need arises for Data Acquisition & transformation. With SSIS Package, we extract and transform data from a wide variety of sources such as XML data files, flat files, and relational data sources into a homogenous format. We lay emphasis on the following activities as part of our Extract, Transform & Load (ETL) Framework:
Import Filters to Read & Convert Data from disparate sources to a homogenous format.
Data Transformations by performing Join, Aggregate, Filter & Data Conversion operation.
De-duplication to find multiple records referring to the same entity & merges them.
Profiling to build tables, histograms, etc. to summarize data.
Quality Management to test against master values, known business rules, constraints, etc.
Data Architecture & Modelling
For an information-driven strategy, every organisation has to have a robust data warehouse design and architecture as the foundation. They must have all of their company’s data in a single data repository.
Our data warehouse architects ensure that you not only get a comprehensive data repository but also get a well optimised Data warehouse with the help of dimensional modelling.
Firstly, we understand the underlying business processes which give us an idea regarding the dimension, facts and underlying relationship amongst the data sets. With this approach, data is grouped into coherent dimensions that help business users in an easier analysis of the data.
The next step is generating the analytical cubes using SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS). SSAS is used to develop Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) solutions. It is used to create cubes using data from data marts/data warehouse for deeper and faster data analysis.
Visualisation & Reporting
We make sure that you harness the full potential of your data warehousing investments. The MSBI Stack provides you with powerful visualisation along with delivering crucial insights right into the decision makers mail box. With a few clicks, these insights could be shared with a larger audience.
With SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) & Power BI, we empower users to drill-down and derive detailed insights from the heaps’ data. It gives the management improved decision-making capabilities with access to metrics and KPIs.
Our solutions are flexible and agile, hence it can quickly adapt to changing users’ requirements. Our dashboards, built with the best of design principles, ensure adoption.
With SQL Server Analysis Services on-premises and Azure Analysis Services in the cloud, you can easily build robust, reusable models over your data to provide consistency across reporting and analysis.
