We pride ourselves on our expertise in Data Warehousing gained from working on some of the largest data warehouses in the UK including organisations like Transco, BMW, Inland Revenue, Cadburys and Barclays.
IT Performs have not recently become involved in data warehousing as it has become more popular, but started specialising in this field back in the mid 90's. This first hand experience, evolving over many years, and passion to keep improving what we do and how we do it now means our customers can avoid many of the pitfalls, reduce the risk and gain far more value from their investment and their data.
Early on we realised that building a Data Warehouse required a different mind set than traditional transaction based systems. We have continued to refine our approach and techniques such that now we can rapidly design and build the 'optimum' data warehouse first time. Something many, non specialist, IT people struggle to achieve. We often see projects that do not deliver on expectation due to a poor design. The end result is a poorly performing, very costly data warehouse solution that fails to deliver any real value to the business. Don't become another statistic:
"more than 50% of data warehouse projects will fail outright or receive limited user acceptance"
IT Performs provides its customers with the following advice to ensure they get it right first time:
But again, don't take our word for it, look to respectable analyst findings:
"META Group found in a recent survey that the primary differentiator between successful and unsuccessful Data Warehouse projects was consultant usage. Highly successful projects
averaged 50% of the project team from external sources, while on less successful
projects no more than 20% of the team was made up of consultants"
The clear message from this research is that the opportunity for success is greatly enhanced by utilising the skills of specialist consultancies such as IT Performs.
