Business Intelligence (BI) - Data Integration & Modelling

Data integration involves combining data from different sources and providing users with a unified view of the data. Data integration increases as volume and data sharing increases. The industry spends a lot of time and money on research to solve ongoing data integration issues. Our Approach to data integration comprises the practices, tools and techniques for achieving the consistent access and delivery of data across the spectrum of systems, data subject areas and data structure types across various levels and departments. We help organization to meet the data consumption requirements of all applications and business processes.

HashTag Systems Approaches to Data Integration

Replication :: This is the second most commonly used method of performing data integration. The changes to the data source are sent to the peripheral systems and then updated. Companies like this method, because existing personnel often possess the skill-set to execute it.

Change Data Capture (CDC) using slowly changing dimensions concept :: This method is very similar to replication, in that it captures and transmits the changes to the data transaction logs. Change data capture is a way of accessing changes without running a complete ETL process.

Batch process ETL :: As the name suggests this method 'miniaturizes' the ETL batch process. The resultant batches are smaller and more regular. They are stored in real-time partitions that are copied daily to static data marts. While very effective, this method has huge resource requirements.
