A recap of biGENIUS's participatin at the TDWI conference 2021.
In March, biGENIUS was once again a topic at the TDWI conference. Peter Welker presented our Smart Data Automation Tool to interested experts during a virtual presentation. In this blog, we revisit the most important points and explain what added value biGENIUS can create for a company.
For all those who did not have the opportunity to attend the presentation on biGENIUS by Peter Welker at the last TDWI conference, we would like to give you the opportunity to briefly read the most important points.
When is it worthwhile to use this unique tool? How does it essentially work and what are its advantages for business? According to Peter Welker’s presentation, we will get to the bottom of these questions once again.
With the Smart Data Automation Tool biGENIUS, mappings can be migrated to biGENIUS in a highly automated way and then new mappings can be generated fully automatically. This not only saves a company time and money, but also allows the company’s own data analytics solution to be improved and further developed in a much less time-consuming and thus more cost-effective manner. The tool can do more than just automatically generate data structures and ETL processes. It revolutionizes the entire data warehouse (DWH) lifecycle – from analysis, design and development to operation and change management.
There are various starting points when a company should consider switching from its old ETL tool to biGENIUS:
How the process of an automatic ETL migration works is best illustrated by this graphic:
Replacing the existing ETL jobs is not an easy task. After all, all mappings once had to be created manually with the ETL tool in a time-consuming manner. The graphic below now uses the Oracle Warehouse Builder example to show how this process can be automated with biGENIUS.
The solution is to read the mapping information from the old ETL tool and create new mappings from it in a highly automated way. But this time, not with an old-fashioned ETL tool again, but with a data analytics automation tool.
A high level of automation is possible, which is typically much faster, cheaper and also more reliable than manual migration. Entities & data flows can be categorized according to rules, which makes the process clear and again less error-prone. Testing can also be automated with this solution as well as the consolidation of methods and patterns. Furthermore, changes in the underlying database can be implemented with less effort.
However, this is not a “drive-by migration”, but a project that can pay off especially with large DWH. Because in principle it can be said: the larger the DWH, the more favorable the automation per object/job.
