With data coming from various sources, we run multiple tests to ensure accuracy and reliability across all formats.

Data Consistency

We ensure that all data is combined and converted to one format, compatible with that existing in data lakes and data warehouses.

Data Cataloging and Tagging

We catalog the data lineage and update the data dictionary, providing better governance and access to both new and existing data.

Preparation tools used at DataFactZ

Increasing your trust in data quality enables data driven decision making and timely insights. We provide you the resources to unlock immediate business value from data.

Key Benefits of a Snowflake Migration

Performance and Speed

The elastic nature of the snowflake creates scalability in the virtual warehouse, allowing you to take advantage of extra compute resources.

Concurrency and accessibility

With traditional data warehouses, users can experience delays or failures when too many queries compete for resources. Snowflake addresses these concurrency issues with its unique multi-cluster architecture: Queries from one virtual warehouse never affect the queries from another, and each virtual warehouse can scale up or down as required. Users can efficiently obtain data without depending on other data intensive processes such as ETL/ELT loads.

Storage and support for structured & semi-structured data

Users gain the ability to combine structured and semi-structured data for analysis and load it into the cloud database, without the initial need for conversion or transformation into a fixed relational schema. Snowflake can automatically optimize how the data is stored and queried.

Seamless data sharing

Snowflake’s architecture enables data sharing among Snowflake users. It also allows organizations to seamlessly share data to consumers outside of the Snowflake environment through reader accounts that can be created directly from the user interface. This functionality allows the provider to create and manage a Snowflake account for a consumer.

Availability and security

Snowflake is distributed across availability zones of the platform on which it runs (AWS, Azure or Google Cloud) and is designed to operate continuously, tolerating component and network failures with minimal impact to customers.

What is a Data Warehouse?

A Data Warehouse is a system for managing data that supports business insights in a meaningful way through the collection of data from varied sources.

What are the Benefits of a Data Warehouse?

Data warehouses have four main benefits. You can create subject oriented analysis looking at a certain area or function, there is consistency in the data accessed from different sources, the data in the warehouse is stable and won’t change, and the warehouse analyses change over time.

What is a Cloud Data Warehouse?

A cloud data warehouse is the same as a data warehouse except it uses the cloud to access and store the data. This comes with additional benefits like cost managements, ease of use, and scalability.

What are the main types of Data Warehouses?

The main types of data warehouses are enterprise data warehouses providing support across an enterprise, operational data stores supporting reporting needs, and data marts that provide support for a specific line of business like sales.

What is Big Data?

Big data refers to large, complex growing amounts of data that cannot be handled by traditional data management solutions.

What are the main characteristics of Big Data?

Big data is defined by data with large amounts of volume, velocity, variety, veracity, value.

How is Big Data being processed?

Setting up big data is a complicated endeavor you have to develop a strategy to harness the data, identify important information like its sources, users, locations, and flow. You can then develop an infrastructure that will meet the analysis and computing needs of the data which is now ready to facilitate.

What are the benefits of Big Data?

Big Data provides better asset management, optimizes resources, more effective strategic planning, faster turnaround time, and shorter reaction times.

What is Data Integration?

Taking data from multiple sources and bringing them together to create a single source for a company to view the complete and current dataset, giving accurate access to business intelligence and data analysis.

How does Data Integration work?

The basis for data integration is taking data from multiple sources and making it accessible from a single location. There are multiple ways to approach this including Extract Transform Load (ETL), data virtualization, and physical data integration.

What are the main patterns of Data Integration?

There are five main patterns of data integration:

  • ETL, Using extract transform load that converts raw data into a repository.
  • Data Virtualization that gives real time access to data when requested  by the user. 
  • Application Integration (API) syncs data between applications together that allow them to work together.
  • Data Streaming that continuously moves data in real time to the repository 

ELT, using Extract Load Transform to move data into a repository and then convert it to be understood by the source.

What is Data Integration used for?

Data integration is used for data governance, warehouse automation, data ingestion, data replication, marketing, internet of things, and data lake development.

What is Data Preparation?

Data Preparation is taking raw data cleaning and transforming it for business uses like analysis. 

What are the benefits of Data Preparation?

The benefits of data preparation are data quality, increased scalability, error detection, efficient decision making, ease in collaboration, and future proofing.

What are the steps of Data Preparation?

The steps are collecting data, Assessing and contextualizing data, cleaning data, formatting and enriching data, and storing data.

Why is Data Preparation important?

It is important because it allows transparency of your data for auditing, accessibility for employees of different skill sets, and repeatability so you can continually prep data with ease.
