The Extract Factory - A Business Model for Efficient Extraction of Data from the Warehouse and Improved Time to Market

How do you make innovation stick? Every group has innovative ideas but it is often very difficult to bring them to reality. At BCBSNC we've found some ways to bring our innovative ideas to life, and we’d like to share some of what we've learned. Our "Extract Factory" concept (an idea that was hatched at last year's IM Symposium!) addresses a common need, to deliver data from the data warehouse to internal and external customers. We have drastically reduced costs through the combination of an innovative technology solution and a new way of organizing people to support and extend the solution. This talk with share the fundamental principals applied, the evolution of the concepts from idea to operation, and the resulting performance improvements so that your teams can also benefit from this model.
