A key competitive differentiator between businesses today is how effectively they can harvest internal and external data for actionable insights into their market, customers, products, and operations. For many organizations, the foundation for such data-driven business intelligence is an enterprise data warehouse (DWH) that integrates data from diverse operational systems and transforms it into a format to facilitate reporting and analytics. To improve the performance and value of their DWH initiatives businesses are increasingly turning to DWH automation technologies. The most innovative and comprehensive DWH automation platform is Attunity Compose, an enterprise-class solution from one of the leading makers of modern data integration software.
