3 Secrets to a Successful Operational Data Store Implementation

In this five part blog series, I’ve explored how operational data stores (ODSs) are becoming the centre of many organizations’ data strategies. In my final post, I’ll share some best practices for a smooth ODS implementation!

Once IT leaders have garnered organizational support for an ODS, it’s time to put the plan into action. The key to simplifying ODS creation and maintenance is to use an automation tool. Here are three secrets to successful implementation of an ODS:

  1. Look for solutions that offer heterogeneous data support. This ensures that a wide range of production systems can be used as data sources and targets.
  2. Find tools with a simple, intuitive user interface. GUI-driven designs that simplify and virtualize operations are ideal. Ease of use means that operational data stores can be created in days or minutes, rather than months, resulting in rapid return on investment.
  3. Consider a tool like Attunity Replicate that makes it easy for IT teams to create an ODS. Attunity Replicate supports homogeneous and heterogeneous IT environments, and provides organizations with a way to distribute information that is intuitive, high performance, and cost-effective.
