Transform data into
By creating a modern data warehouse,
which allows to incorporate agility,
speed and to reduce cost.
Sparkle helps companies to gain insight in the information that is typically spread across multiple data sources, both inside and outside the company boundaries. Sparkle integrates the data from this disperse set of data sources by using a proven, standardised approach whereby we heavily invest in innovation (like automation). This allows our customers to use information in support of the execution of the company’s strategy, and sometimes even leads to new business models using information as a strategic asset. Technology-wise, Sparkle opts for a best of breed strategy combining the Database and Business Intelligence components of Microsoft with Qlik for CDC. This allows the implementation of modern near-real time Data Warehouses.
AGILE INFORMATION FACTORY
The Agile Information Factory is Sparkle’s framework which positions the latest information management concepts.
We have developed a Reference Architecture which serves as a foundation to effectively and efficiently turn data into gold.
DATA VAULT 2.0
One of the cornerstones of our Agile Information Factory is Data Vault 2.0. Data Vault solves many of the issues in classic Data Warehouse projects. One of the basics of the Data Vault data modeling methodology involves splitting business keys, descriptive information and relationships into specific artefacts (hubs, satellites and links). This makes the Data Vault model very predictable, repeatable and lends itself for automation. It’s extremely flexible (integrating a new data source will have zero impact on the existing data warehouse model), helps organisations to comply with legal regulations (full traceability) and is very scalable (with the introduction of hash keys in Data Vault 2.0 each table can now be loaded in parallel).
