Data Warehouse

What is a data warehouse?

A data warehouse is database system that securely houses data from a variety of sources.

Data is extracted from these sources, transformed into a clean and readable format for a specific business use, and then loaded efficiently into a data warehouse where it can be queried and analysed quickly and effectively.

Having a system that facilitates data analytics in this way is the foundation of becoming a data-driven business – a business that uses data to make decisions and guide its internal and external processes.

Why use a data warehouse?

Data warehouses (DWHs) are highly accessible – having structured data that is quick and easy to retrieve is essential for data analysis and extracting meaningful and intelligent insights from it. The data is clean, as data that cannot be analysed easily is not valuable. ETL processes typically manage this for you in a way that scales with increasing data volumes and time.

DWHs allow you to monitor how your business processes change over time and to track changes to data. Historical data can be stored for years, and the activities of users who interact with this data can be monitored or restricted as necessary. The architecture is secure and robust.

Data is centralised and located in one place – this means greater consistency between your data sources and greater control to limit what certain users can read and change inside your data warehouse.

Why do you need reports?

This may seem like a strange question, but a clear and concise report can be more powerful than a full break-down of everything that is available to you.



A data visualisation should impart useful information by telling a story, by looking beautiful and more importantly should serve a purpose. A great visualisation also requires no further explanation – you should understand it purely by looking at it.
