Supports High-Volume Data Integration
Supports High-Volume Data Integration
In the age of big data, data warehouses have to account for growing volumes and variety of data. Astera DW Builder helps you develop an architecture that is ready to meet those needs.
Built on an industrial-strength ETL engine that supports parallel processing along with several options for performance optimization our product is more than capable of handling massive volumes of your data with ease. Add in single-click cloud deployment features and you have everything you need to make your data warehouse fast, agile, and scalable, at a fraction of the cost.
Iterate at the Speed of Business
Iterate at the Speed of Business
As your business environment changes, accurate and timely reporting becomes even more important. To stay ahead of the curve, you need to build a data warehouse that can be modified and updated with ease. Our data warehouse builder empowers IT teams to demonstrate agility when creating a new reporting, BI, or analytics solution for end users. Once the metadata-driven architecture is in place, adapting to new business requirements in iterations is as simple as updating your data model and propagating it across the data warehouse with a few clicks.
Astera Data Warehouse Builder’s modern approach to data warehousing delivers an integrated platform to design, implement, and build your own data warehouse using best practices out-of-the-box.
An Array of Out-Of-The-Box Connectors
Our data warehouse builder offers built-in connectors for several industry-leading databases including on-premises software such as SQL Server and Oracle Database as well as integrations with cloud services such as Amazon and Azure Cloud. Simply connect and configure the relevant source system and get started with modelling your data warehouse.
Support for All Data Modeling Approaches
Astera DW Builder empowers users to design their data warehouse schema however they want. It supports all the common data modeling patterns such as 3NF, star schema, and data vault. You can reverse engineer schemas from a database or import an erwin data model directly. Then with just a few clicks, automatically convert the entities into facts and dimensions or use the hub, link, and satellite framework to build a data warehouse schema that matches your reporting requirements.
Data Model Verification Module
Prior to deployment, every data warehouse goes through several rounds of testing and troubleshooting. Our automated data warehouse product performs thorough data verification checks to cut down these repetitive tasks by highlighting any errors in your data model before moving to the next stage of production. From incomplete fields to referential errors, catch and correct potential issues at the first pass using this single-click validator.
Intelligent Data Mapping
We make data mapping from source systems to the data warehouse flexible and fast so you can reap the advantages of an automated data warehouse without any delays . With Data Model-Query Objects and dedicated Fact and Dimension loaders, users can connect to one or multiple objects, apply transformations and business rules before loading outputs to related entities in their data model. The modern, visual approach cuts down up to 80% of the time spent in manual data mapping while providing complete control to users.
Data Quality and Profiling
Astera DW Builder can profile, cleanse, and validate data to ensure readiness for the data warehouse without the user having to change applications with a variety of data transformations. Everything is done within the data warehouse design tool as part of a single job. For backend logging to understanding errors, use the built-in field profiler and record-level log, or specify business rules and pinpoint data quality issues with ease.
The data warehouse automation solution comes with a robust pushdown optimization mode, allowing users to push these resource-intensive transformations and loading processes in the database. We support full and partial pushdown depending on whether source and destination databases share the same database type and server. With ELT capabilities enabled, you can leverage the processing power of on-prem or cloud databases to load millions of records to fact and dimension tables in seconds.
Deploy Your Data Warehouse in the Cloud
As a end-to-end data warehouse builder, ADWB makes it easier than ever to migrate your data warehouse to the cloud. We offer out-of-the-box connectivity to leading service providers such as Amazon RDS, Snowflake, Azure Synapse Analytics, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, and others. Leverage the Centerprise DB agent to build a secure path to access your on-premises data from the cloud, ensuring quick connectivity and seamless data movement.
Job Scheduling and Workflow Orchestration
Leverage built-in workflow orchestration and job scheduling features to automate ETL operations across your data warehouse and turn your data warehouse automation ideas into reality. Manage how your data warehouse responds to source system changes with a full selection of SCD-types that allow you to dictate how corrections and updates to existing records are reflected in your enterprise data warehouse.
Consumption Through OData Module
Once deployed, Astera Data Models (ADM) can be consumed by outside applications through the OData protocol. Whether you want to connect to your data model through a web browser or API clients such as Postman, all you need to do is enter the relevant address, input the generated token, and expose your ADM for real-time querying. You can also visualize your data through leading reporting and analytics applications, including Tableau, Microsoft PowerBI, and QlikView, to create an end-to-end process that delivers insights in near real-time to decision-makers across your enterprise.
How It Works
In Astera Data Warehouse Builder, data models are the centerpiece of the entire data warehousing process, serving as the foundation for all the subsequent processes, such as ETL mappings, dimension and fact tables population, data consumption through the built-in OData module, and even for change management after deployment.
What Customers are Saying
Health Plan Data Analyst | CCHP
CCHP is now able to load data into our data warehouse where it was otherwise impossible and need to rely on outside vendors to breakdown the files. Astera Centerprise has helped us improve our State Medicaid EDI data submission acceptance and approval rate to over 97%. It has removed the need for an additional 1.0 FTE data analyst at a cost that is less than an additional data analyst.
Sr. Director, BI | Sinclair Broadcast Group
Because of Astera we have been able to evolve and manage our EDW which has data from multiple sources today and is being used across our organization. It offers much easier and faster development time, with better interface.
Business Intelligence / Data Warehouse Architect at Achievers
Ease of use, clever transformations and in general Centerprise has a library of transformations that even heavy duty tools like Informatica doesn't offer, such as SCD. You can literally be up and running in a few seconds, with a very low learning curve.
