Do you have a traditional data warehouse (DW) and have been wondering how to strategically expand its functionality and upgrade its performance? Expanding and upgrading your DW requires a proven technology platform designed to help you modernize your enterprise data infrastructure.
Discovery Hub® by TimeXtender allows a traditionally built DW to easily and completely integrate into a modern, automated data-estate platform. This means that initial costs to build a modern data estate - for an organization with an existing DW - will be very economical and the time to transition will be high-speed. And when transitioning from a DW to a modern data estate with Discovery Hub, the move occurs in a controlled and safe environment.
Here’s how it works:
- You add an external connection to your existing data warehouse and extract the desired tables.
- This process virtualizes your existing DW tables and includes them into the new database.
- Then, as you rebuild and improve on these tables, you use Discovery Hub’s automated ETL to convert these virtualized tables into custom tables.
- Discovery Hub’s functionality also allows users to seamlessly transition their existing traditional DW to an automated data estate platform with zero downtime.
