WE BEAM* OUR DATA REQUIREMENTS
The BEAM* method helps close the gap between business user requirements and data warehouse design.
The data warehouse modeling space is relatively mature. You can be confident that you have access to design solutions for any business processes scenario you will encounter. The thing we aren’t good at, as a profession, is collecting unambiguous requirements and slotting those requirements into proven designs.
