Data Warehouse Automation (DWA) is a technology and approach designed to build and maintain data warehouses that rapidly deliver business value while reducing resources, cost and project risk.
Through automation, the entire range of activity in designing, building, and operating a data warehouse can be achieved much faster compared to traditional data warehouse development and implementation methods.
As a result, your business teams receive the data they need for analysis and decision-making faster, in an environment that is much easier to keep up-to-date with constant business-driven change.
Data warehouse automation is a win for IT and a win for the business!
