The data I need is out there somewhere, but how do I find it? Data Warehousing provides easy access to the right data at the right time to the right users so that the right business decisions can be made. The Data Warehouse Process is a prescription for identifying strategic business information, collecting it from diverse, enterprise-wide sources, organizing it for instant access to all levels of users according to their specific needs, and implementing the architecture that makes it all possible.
Design Area Integration Strategy
Format: PlanSound project management strategy is needed when it's time to integrate design areas. Proactive and reactive techniques help you pull together disparate design areas to form an integrated, consistent, cohesive system.
The Distributed Application Process will help you harness the power of an object oriented (OO) design approach, OO implementation tools and distributed computing technologies to build business systems based on user-friendly interfaces, tiered architectures, shared data, reusable components and incremental upgrades to functionality. Distributed computing systems are easily scalable to accommodate business growth and enable users to be productive quickly with each release.
The Need for Speed - The Rapid Application Development process delivers a system very quickly by focusing on implementing a single business system design area, a prioritized subset of the set of business areas that comprise the enterprise as a whole. The RAD approach is most suitable for small, focused projects with well-defined data and feasible technical architecture requirements. RAD optimizes project speed through such management techniques as prototyping, timeboxing and iterative development.
