Project Scoping 
While starting with a data warehouse initiative, it is important to choose a small but effective business area. We will help in identifying the right business area to focus on and help prioritize the business problems for the different phases of the data warehouse project. 

Requirement Gathering
We collect the existing system reports as well as the new reporting and analytical requirements through user interviews.

Gap Analysis
We identify the missing components in the existing systems and how to build them in the data warehouse so that we can meet the requirements. In case of pre-built data warehouse implementations supplied by a vendor this phase will analyze the gap between the existing functionality in the pre-built data warehouse and the required functionality. 

Functional Design 
We categorize the requirements by different functional areas and arrive at the reports, dashboards, security and other components to be delivered from the data warehouse. 

ETL Tool Evaluation and Selection 
Many data warehouse projects were hand coded with SQL scripts and batch jobs till recently. Now, there are many ETL tools in the market. There are advantages and disadvantages with each of these tools. The decision to buy an ETL tool depends on the functionality offered vs functionality required and the budget. We will help you evaluate and select a suitable ETL tool that meets your requirements. Our consultants have excellent experience in various ETL tools, which will help in making the right decision. 

Reporting/OLAP/Ad-hoc Query Tool Evaluation and Selection 
Analytical tools are the front-end tools used on top of a data warehouse to slice and dice the data. These tools are generally called as On Line Analytical Processing (OLAP) tools. Depending on how the OLAP tools are built, they are categorized into four types namely ROLAP (Relational OLAP), MOLAP (Multi-Dimensional OLAP), DOLAP (Desktop OLAP) and HOLAP (Hybrid OLAP). We will help you understand the difference and pick the right tool for your analytical and reporting environment. 

Project Time and Cost Estimation 
Project time and cost estimation is a crucial part in a Datawarehouse project. We will help you in time and cost estimation by identifing the right size of the development team, time line and cost to meet the requirement.

WebSphere Datastage


IBM® WebSphere® DataStage®, a core component of IBM® WebSphere® Data Integration Suite, enables you to tightly integrate enterprise information, regardless of the sources, targets and timeframes. Whether you're building an enterprise data warehouse to support the information needs of the entire company, building a "real-time" data warehouse, or integrating dozens of source systems to support strategic business systems like CRM, SCM, ERP, BI/analytics, and e-business, IBM WebSphere DataStage helps ensure the success of your enterprise data integration initiatives.

WebSphere DataStage delivers four core capabilities, all of which are necessary for successful data transformation within any enterprise data integration project:

Connectivity to a wide range of mainframe, legacy and enterprise applications, databases, and external information sources — to ensure that every critical enterprise data asset can be used. 
Comprehensive, intrinsic, pre-built library of 300 functions — to reduce development time and learning curves, increase data accuracy and reliability, and provide reliable documentation that lowers maintenance costs. 

Maximum throughput from any hardware investment used in the completion of bulk tasks within the smallest batch windows, and the highest volumes of continuous, event-based transformations using a single high-performance parallel processing architecture. 
Enterprise-class capabilities for development, deployment, and maintenance with no hand-coding required; and high-availability platform support — to reduce on-going administration and implementation risk
