Description

Do you recognise one of these situations?

  • You have gathered the requirements and made a first draft of the conceptual or logical dimensional model
  • You have a conceptual and/or logical dimensional model but you aren’t sure if this model fits your business
  • Your dimensional model is suspected to cause performance problems but you are not sure

That’s when it is a good idea to let us review your dimensional model.

Through engaging with our experts, you get the reassurance that your data warehouse design projects are proceeding towards a successful outcome, or where appropriate, are advised and recommended areas of improvement to get a project back on course. Our experts will assess and make recommendations on your existing model but can also focus on specific areas for detailed review.

Objectives

The Dimensional Model assessment will provide you with objective advice on how your dimensional model can be improved, where potential risks lie, and how you can apply the best practices to maximize your data warehouse investment. Our assessment is designed to minimize the risk of design issues and prevent costly rework.

The assessment provides the following benefits:

  • Ensure the model meets the business requirements
  • Identify design issues, deliver an improvement proposal and present valid alternatives for the present model
  • Provide guidance and best practices
  • Improve your team’s competence and internal confidence in your dimensional model
  • Decrease time to market by avoiding time-consuming redesigns
  • Ensure reassurance and mitigate project risks
