Getting user participation and involvement is one of the key factors in a successful data warehouse project. Instant Warehouse is a prototyping tool that provides you with powerful ways to visualize and analyze your data, while involving end-users at the earliest stages. Users are involved because you can prototype your application using the entire set of real data.
The Instant Warehouse agile modeling techniques reduce the need for extensive advance documentation reviews and dramatically reduce both the time and effort required to plan the project’s data access. In addition, these tools enable you to minimize up-front costs and reduce risks by limiting your exposure related to unexpected data problems or new requirements.
Instant Warehouse's data modeling technologies let you implement a prototype of your project with a minimum of up-front planning and costs. Implement an Instant Warehouse as quickly as you can define the requirements. As you see the results, you can immediately update the model to reflect new or modified:
- Tables and Columns
- Data Mappings
- Data Relationships
- Business rules and other dynamic calculations
- Data transformations and cleansing rules
Once the final model is established, you implement it using the data warehousing tools and techniques you have the most experience with. Instant Warehouse is a modeling tool that allows you to build your project right the first time, without affecting your choice of implementation technologies.
