Business Intelligence Solutions

If you’re doing business today, you’re likely creating massive amounts of data. But how can that data drive the bottom line if it’s not being gathered and stored properly for later consumption? SD3 helps with this business intelligence process by collecting data from source content areas. This data warehouse is composed of three focus areas:


business intelligence solutionsData staging area: Data from operational systems or other content providers is stored.

Translation and integration area: Data is transformed, aggregated, and enhanced to be most useful for later consumption.

Information access area: This area is used for getting information out of the data warehouse for presentation or other uses.


The data warehouse hosts presentation tables organized for decision support purposes and is often published to specific data marts that are directly accessed with reporting and other business intelligence tools.


SD3 builds new data warehouses critical to mainstream industry standard dimensional modeling techniques. This approach enables access to information in the warehouse from a number of different angles. It is also important to use a phased approach where the data warehouse can be initially created and then extended by adding new content areas within an iterative release management framework.
