Whether it supports the entire enterprise or just a departmental solution, Xentio’s data architects and engineers can help conceptualize, design and implement your data warehouse solution. Xentio’s collective Data Warehouse experience covers all of the major database vendors, including developing DHW’s using new NoSQL tools.

Extraction, Transform, Load

ETL is the glue that connects the data warehouse to its data sources. Our ETL consultants are highly skilled in analysis of data transformational requirements, and in the implementation of ETL solutions that are optimized to populate and update the Data Warehouse.

Enterprise Reporting

After designing and building your DWH, your business users are keen to see reports and dashboards that easily visualise the data. Xentio’s analytics team can easily develop cubes and end-user reports using the industries most popular tools.
