Every industry wants to improve operational efficiencies; technology is greatly used to improve customer service, on-line on-time performance reporting, and executive decision making.
RiVi believes in transforming data into decisions and decisions into actions. Executives always require stake holders and managers to make decisions based on multiple reports derived from diverse data sources. Most of the projects often depend on hundreds of undocumented spreadsheets that, taken together, contain the information critical to the control and success of project. Each month, data is transferred from or to spreadsheets made by operational personnel. Data is lost. While going through linked spreadsheets, errors are made. Key decisions are often made using inappropriate and out of date information.
An enterprise data warehouse (EDW) provides the basis for data analysis in any industry setting. It collects, standardizes, integrates and organizes data from diverse systems throughout an organization in one place. Decisions are easy to make using accurate data, based on a true real time picture of the business. Users get immediate analysis of business performance and opportunities by market, customer, product, sales, demographics and time dimensions including corporate and business units. Additionally, past trends can be kept for future forecasting and past performance analysis.
EDW benefits a business greatly. Effective and efficient business decisions can be made based on accurate and timely information.
EDW consists of data mart architecture, which captures and stores data from various data sources within the corporation. The data sources can be legacy mainframes, client server systems, maintenance and material management systems, asset management systems, human resource systems, financial systems and other critical operational information systems, access databases, excel spreadsheets or even manual paper forms.
