Features customer success story

DWH optimization solution for an insurance company

A multi-line business insurance company aimed to implement a data warehouse solution for managing its claims operations. They used MS SQL server, and the source systems were a popular multi-line claims system, ERP systems, home-grown applications, AS400, and mainframe systems. They also had multiple feeds coming in from business sources and digitized forms. They had around 150 TB of data, and the ETL processes that extracted data from these sources took over 30-36 hours, as opposed to an overnight processing requirement.

The extended data load time impacted operational dashboards and reports, impacting timely operational decision-making. The ETL processes were not designed well for exception handling and they lacked an efficient recovery process. This resulted in data quality and integrity issues.

Data load reduced from 36 hours to 6 hours

ETL process was redesigned and optimized

Data process was remodeled and re-sequenced

Corrected errors in the historical data

FAQs 

What is an enterprise data warehouse?

An enterprise data warehouse is a centralized and structured data repository, which holds the enterprise’s business data, including information on the customersThe EDW gathers the enterprise data and makes it available for analysis, business intelligence and data-driven decision making.

Why do enterprises need a data warehouse?

How do you support system migrations?

System migrations are part of technology modernization, where the process involves transferring old IT systems to new hardware infrastructure or the cloud infrastructure.  

Whereas migrating data to data warehouse means a change in storage, database or application. In the context of extract/transform/load (ETL) processes, we help enterprises use extract, transform and load software or processes to read and extract data from sources, process it in the data warehouse and ensure optimal results
