Extraction, Transformation and Loading of data from Persistent Data Storages (PDS) to Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) was accomplished using Informatica. EDW is a loaded database having forty-one months of historical data that will be one source for analysis across all subject areas within WellPoint. The data is gathered from legacy databases across all plans (based on releases) and checked to ensure consistency across all subject areas. This will now be the primary source for reporting and analytics for all data users at Client.
