The QuantumIT SMART data management utility provides a warehouse management toolkit incorporating a fully featured job scheduler and comprehensive ETL functionality. This caters for both development requirements and day-to-day operations of any data warehouse. Additionally, the utility incorporates Data Migration modules supporting end-to-end processing streams from source extract to staging, through validation, cleansing, transformation and reconciliation. The methodology and supporting functions enable a clear definition of the scope of the task at the validation stage, and by reporting directly from the central execution and configuration repositories, provide management with unambiguous status monitoring of the progress of the migration assignment. The Issue Management functions contained in the utility also support on-line interaction between technical and business team members enabling spotlight focus on inhibitors to progress.
QuantumIT’s methodologies coupled with the SMART utility provide projects with a powerful delivery combination that centres on iterations and tracking progress. A migration with iterations will validate automated process, quantify progress, cater for late business rule changes, and avoid stress at Go Live. Progress tracking is key for ongoing reporting of how much work remains in a migration project. It validates you have a project with an end date that can be managed.
