How biGENIUS helped implement a brand new operational data store (ODS) and an enterprise data warehouse (EDW), lowering costs both in development and maintenance along with shorter time-to-market for a number of new features.

In 2012 the small IT team based in Lausanne started its first DWH project from scratch. None of the two team members had previous experience or background in analytics. Supported by the tool experts, the first BI reports were provided shortly. Along with the increasing adoption of provided reports by users across the entire company, more and more new requirements from business units followed and reqiured delivery within shorter and shorter deadlines. Thus, the next logical step was to enhance the exisiting BI platform, but this time using biGENIUS for data warehouse automation.
Within a few months after the initial presentation of biGENIUS in January 2017, the training of the IT team and a POC were successfully completed. Thus, the development of a brand new operational data store (ODS) and an entreprise data warehouse (EDW) started. In data modelling, the development team used star schema.
Thanks to the architecture blueprints intergrated in biGENIUS, instead of tackling with technical details, the small BI team could focus on implementing the business logic and providing the desired reports to business users timely. Further, biGENIUS allowed customization e.g. data mappings, incremental loads could be managed fully in the tool, so no manual development after the process of code generation was needed.
1. Even before the Go-Live of the new BI platform, benefits of automation in the development could be observed e.g. significantly lower costs both in development and maintainance along with shorter time-to-market for a number of new features.
2. Additionally, biGENIUS provided the team with ready-to-use customizable blueprints for data warehousing and a semantic layer for data modelling. This enabled the BI developers of TiRus to implement a best quality data management solution even without long-year experience in data analytics.
