timeXtender is a Microsoft SQL Server based tool that simplifies the implementation of the ETL and data warehousing process. timeXtender enables agile dimensional modeling and supports the Kimball data warehousing methodology.
In timeXtender, the data warehouse model is designed in metadata, and you have one single metadata model where you design and make changes to your entire project. timeXtender supports the Kimball methodology of dimensional modeling and enables you to design snowflake schemas – and star schemas if required.
As requirements for the data warehouse change constantly, it makes sense to apply agile methodologies to data warehouse implementations. timeXtender’s agile approach supports short iterations that enable you to keep up with the changing requirements. It also means that your dimensional model is constantly kept up-to-date.
timeXtender works with Microsoft SQL Server and provides a robust and stable base for your data warehouse. timeXtender utilizes and enhances the features of Microsoft SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) and Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS). All data warehouse projects in timeXtender are fully documented and there’s complete version control.
The ability to track historically accurate values for dimension attributes is crucial. timeXtender supports easy implementation of slowly changing dimensions so that you can analyze on how the attribute has changed over time.
The extract, transform and load (ETL) process is critical to any data warehousing project. Using the timeXtender ETL and data warehousing tool, you will achieve several benefits including :
- automation of extraction of data from multiple data sources
- auto-generation of SQL code
- data integration
