GE Aero – DWH Sync

Jan 2012 – March 2012 Team Size: 6


Informatica Consultant

GE Aero has a shared (Jaros - Noetix) DWH. There are about 400 reports which run on DWH. The source is Oracle ERP 11i. Noetix has a triggered based logic with staging area to pump in data to DWH on a regular basis. Due to multiple reasons the some records don’t flow through and there is no standard reconciliation logic to check if the data is up to date. We have designed a robust logic to validate and also pump the delta records to DWH. This required reverse engineer the existing data model to find loop holes. Impact was phenomenal in delivery of reports and many month end book closing went without any glitches. We have automated the process and also were able to provide some Data Quality checks i.e. row is available but data in a column is varying. Made a million $ impact by timely delivery and reliable solution.
