Innovative Systems and Prism Solutions partner to provide Innovative-Warehouse solution.
The Innovative-Warehouse solution automates the process of reengineering and warehousing corporate data to serve the decision support needs of marketing, sales, and customer service. It is distinguished by its extremely high data integrity and applicability for both operational and on-line analytical processing (OLAP) tools.
Data warehouses depend on source information from legacy and operational systems to be migrated and converted to a database of consistent, subject-oriented, historical information. The Innovative-Warehouse solution, offered by Innovative Systems and available immediately, addresses these component processes and ensures their success.
ISI's products improve the accuracy of customer information by standardizing, consolidating and reformatting customer names, addresses, and relationships. Prism Warehouse Manager(TM) can then extract and integrate this reengineered data to build a data warehouse in a client/server or mainframe environment. Prism Warehouse Manager automates the data conversions, summarizations, key changes, structural changes, and condensations needed to create an historical perspective of enterprise-wide information.
``This partnership allows clients to harness data that was once isolated, incompatible, and inadequately structured for the kind of decision support required both in the back office and in the field,'' said John Vallieres, ISI's Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. ``The Innovative-Warehouse solution will clean and consolidate current and historical data to support sales, marketing, and service efforts.''
Jim Ashbrook, president of Prism Solutions added, ``One of the most crucial elements involved in building a data warehouse is ensuring the timeliness, accuracy, and completeness of the source data that gets loaded into the warehouse. ISI's data integrity products help companies clean, standardize, and aggregate the data from their operational systems, thus minimizing the amount of work required to prepare data for warehouses. We are very pleased to be partnering with ISI to help clients implement the highest quality data warehouses.''
