  • Recall that I said there are many steps in the process of turning data into information. This is just a partial list of the tasks involved in a best practices data warehouse operation. These tasks don’t go away in a model-driven approach. But, being well-governed requires repeatable processes that deliver consistent results. There is no way to achieve that if these remain manual tasks or are driven from different perspectives. Manual processes are often prone to human error, are inconsistent, and take too much time – especially when requirements change frequently. In a model-driven approach, information policies that support business requirements emerge directly from the business information model. These information policies form a reference against which all of these tasks can be executed. Because of this, you can automate a very large number of these tasks and achieve consistent results. Anybody who’s built data warehouses using Kalido would never go back to what one of our customers call “stick build”. Because you’d never want to have to design and write code that does all this from scratch again. We handle ragged and variable depth hierarchies. We handle data exceptions. We have a built-in match engine for identity resolution. We build slowly changing dimensions without you having to do a single thing. We generate data marts. And all of this is driven by the business information model.

  • 3. 3 July 23, 2013© Kalido I Kalido Confidential I July 23, 2013 True Cost of Ownership Decision support draws from many disciplines – Business Analysts – System Architecture – Data Modeling – ETL – Database design and administration – Business Intelligence Multiple interaction points – Errors – Delays
  • 4. 4 July 23, 2013© Kalido I Kalido Confidential I July 23, 2013 Build Cost and Maintenance Cost Complexity and expertise requirements add up A typical warehouse project will cost ~ $2 million TDWI survey – Take 2 years to complete – Annual maintenance cost is 50% to 75% of build cost 5 year TCO = $6 million – Not including extension or expansion
  • 5. 5 July 23, 2013© Kalido I Kalido Confidential I July 23, 2013 Why is it so expensive? Architectural Rigidity – Each layer is built upon the last – No dynamic interaction Difficulty of revision leads to: – Long requirements gathering – Long design phase – “Answer everything” Requirements gap – By the answer is available the question has changed
  • 6. 6 July 23, 2013© Kalido I Kalido Confidential I July 23, 2013 Imagine building an office building… You lay the foundation… Erect the framework… Install the plumbing… The wiring and elevators… Lay out all the office space… And then decide you need a hotel instead!
  • 7. 7 July 23, 2013© Kalido I Kalido Confidential I July 23, 2013 A better way The “Lego Approach” What makes them work? – A single consistent format – Many different shapes and sizes – All able to connect to each other Kalido is like that

  • 9. 9 July 23, 2013© Kalido I Kalido Confidential I July 23, 2013 Kalido supports an incremental approach Don’t “answer every question” – Just the most important ones – Iterate your way to a first release Then incrementally expand Never rebuild…just reconfigure Automation is the key Finance Sales Marketing Distribution Supply Chain eCommerce Partners HR Manufacturing Value Time

  • 11. 11 July 23, 2013© Kalido I Kalido Confidential I July 23, 2013 The bottom line Kalido customers build their Data Warehouse for less – 50% less cost, and 75% less time – Smaller teams – Fewer tasks – No handoffs Kalido Customers maintain their warehouses for less – Only 15% to 20% of the initial build cost – No rebuilding – Less testing – Faster turnaround
  • 12. 12 July 23, 2013© Kalido I Kalido Confidential I July 23, 2013 The payoff The “average” data warehouse project… – Instead of 2 years, takes about 9 months (with interim results) – Instead of $2 million, costs $1million – Instead of a $6 million 5 year TCO, less than $2 million Better aligned with business needs – Over a year sooner – Over $4,000,000 savings
