    Projects Profile

    Client –Confidential,

    All corps Data Warehouse (ADW) is Allstate’s Data Warehouse to consolidate data from different sources.ADW warehouse capture most of information like policy information, claims, billing, HRM area. Data is extracted from different sources.ADW architecture is divided into three layers.Raw, Standard, Presentation.Raw layer is image of source with minimum transformation. Standard layer is mostly normalized data. Presentation layer is for reporting purpose.
    Implementation of ADW included migrating the current data from legacy to Oracle in the first phase called as History Migration and the second phase consisted of loading the daily transaction updates to ADW referred to as incremental.
