Your responsibilities

Our BI environment is composed of 4 parts (separate databases):

  • A load environment (CBMT Load): used for data staging
  • A Master Data Store (CBMT Master Data): which is the target to become the single source of business data used across all systems, applications and/or processes within Facility Management
  • A Datawarehouse (CBMT Reporting): includes the business intelligence of FAC and the data enhancements and modelling for reporting and analytics
  • A Log environment (CBMT Scheduler): used to support ETL scheduling and ETL logging
  • The goal of this mission is to describe and document the data model of this Masterdata database
  • This should include the conceptual, the logical and physical model.
  • The documentation must be provided in such a way that is easily searchable and updatable.
  • Furthermore recommendation should also be made on the following

topics:

  • where best to document which information (in database scripts, in design of database, separately in Word, in Architecture software tool (RSM tool) and so on)
  • Best practices and standards related to naming convention, indexes, constraints as such that it can be a uniform system and that it would facilitate knowledge transfer between developers and dba’s

Besides this a full documentation should be made about the ETL packages that are used to feed and maintain the different databases. This should include the following:
