An Introduction to TimeXtender

TimeXtender in a nutshell


TimeXtender provides a context in which to consolidate and organize the diverse tasks integral to the process of designing, developing for, and deploying a data warehouse.

It provides abstraction with respect to warehouse design, development and maintenance. As such it reduces the complexity in the typical tasks associated with these themes:
 
  • Connecting to, exploring, and extracting data from upstream sources.

  • Loading source data into a warehouse staging area.

  • Building or changing a logical data model.

  • Generating (or re-generating) the transformations used to populate data structures in the warehouse.

  • Building, changing, or maintaining the different types of denormalized data structures (star schemas, OLAP cubes) that are commonly exposed to front-end BI reporting and analytical tools.

  • Determining the impact of proposed changes to upstream sources.

  • Upgrading from one version of a target RDBMS to another.

  • Moving from a warehouse target running in one context (e.g., on-premises Oracle) to a target running in a very different context (e.g. Azure SQL Data Warehouse).


It helps in the lifecycle management of data warehouse systems:
 
  • Cost effective data warehouse maintenance.

  • Migrating from one warehouse target platform to another.

  • Upgrading a data warehouse.

  • Retiring a data warehouse.


TimeXtender focuses on eliminating time-consuming, tedious, or rote tasks. Its automatic generation of metadata enables it to produce documentation and ascertain data lineage for any data item (i.e. where was it ingested from and what processes did it move through on its journey).
