Organizations looking for business insights and powerful decision analytics turn to CATCH Intelligence for their Data Warehouse modeling and development needs.

CATCH Intelligence’s Data Warehouse lifecycle methodology combines the best practices of an architected approach with incremental and iterative development to accelerate the delivery time of BI and data warehouse/data provisioning projects while greatly reducing the risks associated with these types of projects.  This translates into successful implementations, avoidance of cost and time overruns and shrinking the time to value of both tactical and strategic capabilities for your organization.  Our repeatable methods compliment your internal development methodology of choice (agile/scrum, rapid development, waterfall, etc.) in that we bring proven and repeatable software development life cycle best practices for BI and Data Warehousing projects, together with industry-leading techniques (how) and deliverable templates as accelerators to ensure quality results.  Add our collective years of experience focused in solving data challenges and deep enterprise data architecture background, combined with industry-specific knowledge, and your opportunity for successful projects increases dramatically.

We bring attention to detail from our ETL standards which ensure data integrity from initial extraction of data to the end point of the information consumer, to ensuring that data is architected for reuse, sharing and alignment to enterprise architecture vision, strategies and objectives is realized. Our holistic approach is about helping your organization quickly deliver trustworthy data that is of the greatest value to your organization by ensuring that each project begins with a well scoped set of objectives, and that requirements are owned and driven by the project sponsor/product owner and are managed throughout the project and its phases, releases and iterations. As a part of our methodology we will align to your standards and guidelines including your data governance and BICC practices and will gladly interject those best practices as additional services if desired.

Our full project life cycle support also addresses the important aspects of addressing culture with human change management and communication management as part of our overall project management discipline
