Democratizing Access to Corporate Data in 4 Simple Steps
1. Data Access Simplified ODS/Stage Area
First, TimeXtender combines all the data sources into a single staging area. This means analysts have only one source they need to connect to.
2. Data Quality and Consistency Maintained Discovery Hub/MDW
Next, TimeXtender automates the comprehensive steps involved in data preparation. Golden records are generated when data from different systems are combined into a single set. When quality issues arise, or bad data is found, the error is corrected once, for all users. And TimeXtender keeps meticulous historical records so there is one trusted version of the truth.
3. Self-Service Enabled Pre-built Qlik models
When specific data sets are collected and optimized for Qlik, business users can access them without any knowledge of the underlying data structures. That means they don’t have to ask anyone in IT for help.
4. Democratization Achieved Qlik applications
Finally through the use of various Qlik applications, business users can create and customize dashboards and reports, independently making this truly an enterprise wide BI solution.
In step 2, the Discovery Hub stage, we bring in all data and do not make any decisions about which data will be used. This is a major difference between our approach and the classic approach of building out a star schema where only select data can be discovered. By keeping things simple, we’re enabling success.
Around 3,000 companies in the world use TimeXtender to automate building of SQL Server data warehouses. Often combining data from multiple data sources such as JD Edwards, SAP, Dynamics, Salesforce etc.
