Data warehouse projects run into trouble because too much focus is placed on what platform should be used, and not enough on the people and data that interact with the platform. This blueprint will help you establish a solid foundation upon which you can build a successful data warehouse program by following our three-phase methodology:
- Prepare for the Data Warehouse Foundation Project
- Establish the Business Drivers and Data Warehouse Strategy
- Plan for Data Warehouse Operations
By focusing initial efforts on establishing governance and understanding the data that will enable business activities, your team will be able to better identify fit-for-purpose technology, as well as have operating procedures that preserve data consistency and integrity.
