Data is an asset but only when it can be used in a business context. In its raw state, data is like the raw materials feeding a factory - necessary but having a meaning until it is transformed, refined and moulded into something of value. Prima Consulting is the information factory, we take your raw data and turn it into the engine room of your business management. Our specialist teams can collect, store and manage your data making it a powerful asset to your business.

Data Integration, Management & Warehousing - Hadoop & SQL

    Data integration is the heart and soul of Information Management. It brings together and combines data from multiple source systems into a data warehouse, enabling all users to work off a single, integrated set of data—a single version of the truth. The result is an organisation that no longer spins its wheels collecting data or arguing about whose data is correct, but one that uses information as a key process enabler and competitive weapon.

    Data integration consumes 60 to 80 percent of an information management program. It is so time consuming because it involves the unenviable task of integrating the enterprise’s data from scratch. Over time organisations merge, introduce new processes and systems, restructure and acquire other businesses resulting in a mismatch of data managed by departments and all with their own version of "the truth".

    To obtain a consistent, enterprise view of data these multiple sources of truth need to be brought together with a common understanding. To ensure your decisions are driven by the highest quality data our specialist team provides data integration services including;

    • Data Quality
    • Data Profiling 
    • Customer Data Integration (name and address verification / de-duplication) 
    • ETL / ELT

    Data management turns data into an asset by making sure it is fit for purpose and easily understood. It provides the policies, procedures, definitions and governance required to effectively manage and use data. Our expert data management team provides specialist services for data management including;
