One of the best parts about the Network's growing presence in Europe is I get to meet companies that are providing great value in regional markets that may not be on your radar. illuminate is a new type of data warehouse that provides greater flexibility than other solutions. The way illuminate organizes data allows it to provide the following to its clients.


Advantages of illuminate
With illuminate it is simple to ask new questions or to build new reports. There will be no need to restructure the data warehouse.


With illuminate it is easy to add new data, data sources, or fields. Again, there will be no need to restructure the data warehouse.


Using illuminate speeds up the entire process:

The business analysis phase becomes very short. There is no need to anticipate queries and reports in advance.

The logical design phase is also short. There is no need for dimensions or other structures.

The physical design phase is highly simplified. There is no need for optimizations or clustered storage on disk.

The build phase is easy and highly automated. All decomposition and value-indexing is done automatically during load-time.

Complex queries can be built very fast with the special exploration tool. There is no need for complex SQL statements for these queries.

All searches and queries are executed very fast because they always use indexed data.

illuminate has passionate employees and is poised for great things check them out here
