Why Your Data Warehouse is Failing.


Being a critical component of any data-driven organisation, a Data Warehouse is a necessity.  

However, you’re probably wondering why your Data Warehouse is the biggest pain in your life, or maybe you don’t even have one yet?! Unfortunately, there isn’t one quick fix to solve all your problems – as nice as that’d be!  

But it’s time to get real – most Data Warehouses are crap. And, ultimately, yours could be one of them.  

A poorly designed or maintained Data Warehouse can cause serious problems for your business, becoming a hindrance rather than a help. Which we’re sure you don’t want, and we certainly don’t want that for you!  

But why are you dealing with a crap Data Warehouse? It doesn’t have to be this way; you shouldn’t be suffering! 

Keep scrolling (and reading, obviously) and you will learn why your Data Warehouse is failing and how to eliminate your Data Warehouse pain and experience Data Warehouse pleasure.  


With a mass of legacy code built up over a significant amount of time, by an amalgamation of different developers, consultants, freelancers or even monkeys – your Data Warehouse has no coding standards. Each individual has their own way of working and different approaches to answering your technical problems, which causes points of concern.  

Arguably, this doesn’t solve any of the technical problems you have encountered within your Data Warehouse. It just raises more problems!  

With the different processes, different ways to answer problems and no coding standards, from these individuals, it makes the support process a massive pain. Resulting in your having to sift through the code, try to understand what is happening, why it is happening, how it is happening, where it is happening… you get the picture.  

Consequently, it takes hours to try and figure out what caused the problem in the first place! And in that time, you’ve probably encountered even more issues which you need to spend even more time trying to fix. It’s a vicious cycle, to be honest! 

As if this wasn’t enough, the support overhead for this is massive! Having to do these manual and repeatable tasks is time-consuming and a huge strain on your resources. Let’s face it, do you really enjoy doing these mundane tasks? 


Repetitive tasks kill productivity.  

The more time that is being spent on doing mundane, repeatable tasks the less time you spend on the things that matter and benefit your organisation’s growth and overall success. 

Why are you doing repeatable tasks? You could spend your time wisely, and more efficiently, by building out new data features and data products that will help your business advance and contribute to the building of a data-driven culture. Oh wait, you don’t have the time because of these mundane, repeatable tasks!  

Why waste time and money when you can automate these processes? Seems simple, right? 



Data is clearly vital to your organisation, which is why you need to stop wasting time processing data and struggling to build new data processes. You need to start spending your time being laser-focused on delivering data-driven analytics.
