Oracle Warehouse Builder Implementation

Specifically, the steps performed in Warehouse Builder to insure data quality are:

  • Starting at the 12 o’clock position, the metadata about data sources is captured.
  • Next, the data sources are profiled.
  • The data rules are then derived from data profiling or existing data rules are imported or entered manually.
  • Data flows (mappings) are designed utilizing name and address and match-merge operators
  • Data flows are combined in process flows, adding data auditors that measure data quality at any given point in the process
  • The processes are deployed and executed, transforming raw data into quality information
  • Information quality is, as a final step, continuously monitored in the operational environment by Warehouse Builder’s data auditor programs
