Analytics

DMS is a fast track to reaping the rewards of analytics/information from your systems. Whether you have an existing data warehouse or are thinking about building one there is significant value in using DMS to get you there.

If you don’t have an existing data warehouse you can transform your existing data structures in to Redshift without the expense of building one from scratch. Building your own can cost a lot in terms of internal resources, infrastructure and software costs which may only be used occasionally. However, creating a DMS/Redshift environment employs state of the art data structures and eliminates the need for an expensive data warehouse build.

In a short amount of time you could be operating your business on virtual real time analytics, rather than driving your business looking in the rear-view mirror. If you have an existing data warehouse a DMS/Redshift transformation can produce faster results through a leaner architecture.
