As the company has grown from three to over 600, Bankers Healthcare Group has remained committed to providing healthcare professionals with the most innovative financial solutions in the industry.
For three years, I have been responsible for designing and implementing the Data Warehouse at BHG. Following the rapid growth of the company and our data operations, it was immediately clear that in-depth and concise documentation was needed for the multiple fields and tables added each day. Dataedo has also improved productivity of both new hires and seasoned employees by reducing the likelihood of costly misunderstandings by providing a glossary of commonly used terms, naming conventions, and even commonly-used strategy patterns.”
After creating the Data Warehouse for companywide use, we were looking for a way to easily inform other employees about the Data and also providing consistent database documentation. We needed a way to make the data understood by every data user and not just a few developers. We also needed a solution to allow access to information in the Data Warehouse without giving too many users access to the system. Thus, reducing the risk of performance issues, data corruptions etc.
After extensive demos and trials with other solutions, Dataedo quickly proved to be the easiest and most functional tool available. Not only are we able to create the necessary descriptions needed to understand the data, we now have the ability to make this documentation available in HTML format which is securely accessed via our SharePoint site. Data Users throughout the company are also more knowledgeable about the relationship between tables, unique keys, joins, etc., all information that is easily configured to be displayed in Dataedo.
Dataedo is the perfect supplement to the Data Warehouse as it is the single source of truth. It allowed BGH in achieving following results:
Dataedo is the perfect supplement to our Data Warehouse
In the future, we will be expanding our data documentation operations to other database environments in the company. We will also be able to better support data governance requirements and functions with Dataedo as part of our arsenal.
