Share Article

Southport Services Group is pleased to announce its Data Warehouse and Reporting Assessment offering. This assessment helps companies dramatically decrease their data storage costs by in depth analysis of actual data usage and processing patterns surrounding the data warehouse including ETL and BI/reporting activities. With this offering, Southport Services Group will help clients eliminate unnecessary investment in data warehouse storage while improving overall performance and providing increased control of sensitive and business-critical data.

Southport Services Group is leveraging its expertise in both BI/reporting and Data Management to deliver a unique Data Warehouse and Reporting Assessment offering. This offering analyzes actual usage of data within the data warehouse as well as processing patterns in order to determine exactly who is accessing which data when, how, and why. This assessment also identifies data that is not being utilized, can track user and process-level access of sensitive data, and provides the client with concrete remediation steps as part of an ongoing process for improving data warehouse and reporting activities.

"Too often, we see our clients upgrading their data warehouses based purely upon data volumes or performance without a good understanding of whether the data is being used and who or what is generating queries at what times and for what reasons. We wanted to be able to help our clients understand exactly how their data warehouse is being used in order to optimize storage utilization and improve performance. The Data Warehouse and Reporting Assessment does that, and it also allows our clients to track access to sensitive data for compliance/regulatory purposes or to protect personal or competitive information," said Matt Campbell, Managing Director at Southport Services Group.

According to Jim Butz, Principal at Southport Services Group, "The cost of storing and managing data is being driven higher by increasing data volumes. Up until now, our customers have been forced to rely on rudimentary estimating models to guide their investments in data warehouse platform expansion. With the introduction of our Data Warehouse and Reporting Assessment, we are taking the guesswork out of managing the data warehouse environment, providing our customers with the visibility they need to dramatically decrease their data storage costs and improve management of sensitive data, all while improving performance and the end-user experience.”
