To put it simply, an Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) collects data from your company’s internal as well as external data sources, to be used for simple reporting and dashboarding purposes. Often, some analytical transformations are applied to that data as to create the reports and dashboards in a way that is both more useful and valuable. That said, there exist additional valuable use cases which are often missed by organizations when building a data warehouse. The truth being, EDWs can access untapped potential beyond simply reporting statistics of the past. To enable these opportunities, Data Vault brings a high grade of flexibility and scalability to make this possible in an agile manner.
Data Vault Use Cases
A whole variety of use cases can be realized by using the data warehouse, e.g. to optimize and automate operational processes, predict the future, push data back to operational systems as a new input or to trigger events outside the data warehouse, to simply explore but a few new opportunities available.
