Do you often get nightmares about haunting questions like:
- How many databases do we have?
- Where do we store our customer / revenue / employee / product data?
- What data do we have in the cloud?
- How many apps are we / our clients using and what data do they have?
- Who has access to our data?
- Which database is a quality one?
- How many duplicate copies of that data do we have?
- …and so on
When it comes to building the data foundation for digital transformation of any organization, these are few questions that most companies struggle with.
Data challenges faced by organizations
Data structuring and systems optimization
Structuring datasets is essential to make sense out of the acquired data for further analysis. As new data streams into the system, it becomes even more difficult to parse the structure. In addition, it will become difficult for the system manager to qualify the data for analytics. It is equally important to carefully design and configure data analysis tools to provide better results, making development decisions easier.
Choosing the right type of warehouse
There are two basic types of data warehouses to choose from: pre-assembled and customized warehouses. Choosing a custom warehouse will save you time building a warehouse from various operational databases, but pre-assembled warehouses save time on initial configuration. If you don’t want to worry about carrying out the entire data operations from collecting to sorting and cleaning data, and if you want to focus on your core business, pre-assembled data warehouses are the best option. But if you require too many modifications with the data warehouse, building your own data warehouse or customizing one would be the best choice.
Data governance and master data
As information is one of the most essential assets of any organization, it is necessary to monitor it closely. Implementing data governance allows you to define ownership, which ensures that shared data is both consistent and accurate. Investing in data governance and master data should be imperative for organizations that treat data as enterprise asset.

Benefits of implementing Softweb’s data warehouse solutions powered by Informatica
Enhanced system and query performance
We design and construct data warehouses with a focus on speed of data retrieval and analysis. Data warehouse solutions powered by Informatica allow companies to store large volumes of data and enable them to rapidly run queries on those datasets.
Visibility and access to data
Our data warehouse solutions enable businesses and decision makers to gain access to data from various sources. Additionally, businesses are benefited with a decrease in time consumed to retrieve the data required for further analysis. ETL solutions are leveraged within a data warehouse environment to consolidate data from multiple source systems and transform the data into useful formats.
Consequently, businesses can easily access data from a unified interface. Moreover, users will be able to run queries on the data directly without requiring any external team’s support and will be able to generate reports and queries on their own.
Improved data quality and consistency
Our data management solution enables businesses to gather heterogeneous data from disparate sources and transform all that data into a standardized format. This gives companies a leverage to remove inconsistency from data stored in the unique source system. Different business units and departments including sales, marketing, finance, operations, and others will be able to utilize the same data repository as the source system to generate individual reports. Hence, each of these individual business units and departments will be able to produce results that are consistent and aligned with other business units within the organization.
The use of query and analysis tools against a consistent and consolidated data repository enables business users to spend more time performing data analysis and less time gathering data. Contact our Informatica consultants to discuss and resolve your data warehouse struggle.
