I think the concept of an interactive warehouse is finding many takers. We sensed this trend by tuning the components of our architecture to support our interactive warehouse strategy. For example, we spent a lot of effort in creating an architecture that will have the capability to represent data from different vendors in a single view. Today, our architecture allows us to collect data from numerous sources such as legacy and mainframe databases, applications and external data sources. Organisations can also apply transformations and conversion logic to present the data in useful business terms. End-users can access the data from standard query and reporting tools or applications.
