The Microsoft Velocity Project addressed challenges in managing a centralized data repository and meeting strict SLA timeframes. By providing downstream teams access to centralized data for building data cubes, the project tackled obstacles such as handling large data volumes, creating an efficient ETL process, limited source database access, and manual process delays. Through innovative solutions and automation, the Velocity Project achieved improved efficiency, reduced development efforts, cost savings, and enhanced decision-making capabilities for Microsoft.
The Microsoft Velocity Project faced challenges in managing a centralized data repository, including handling large data volumes within strict SLA timeframes, creating a high-density low-latency ETL process, limited source database access, and manual processes causing delays and inefficiencies..
To overcome these challenges, the Velocity Project implemented solutions such as Standard Transformation Mapping (STM) for metadata acquisition, automated database script generation, and an enhanced data acquisition model to automate the creation of databases and Informatica workflows.
