Data Warehouse 5.0

Features and Benefits

Key features and benefits include:

  • Improved performance for queries of large datasets (i.e., hundreds of millions of rows of data)
  • The introduction of a data retention policy feature for controlling how much historical data is stored in the system in order to facilitate operational or regulatory compliance
  • The addition of native data compression, which enables users to retain historical data without increasing infrastructure costs or compromising regulatory compliance
  • Faster retrieval of data when running complex queries/reports from multiple data sources, allowing for the visualization of portfolio holdings, investments, performance, and attribution from a single dashboard view
  • A new Column Store capability to support Big Data scenarios by allowing for the management of up to one billion rows of data
  • Improved performance for time-series data (data that changes over time, e.g., portfolio holdings, prices, performance)
  • Enhanced integration with cloud-hosted Power BI®

“We are pleased to offer our clients an enhanced version of ACA’s NorthPoint Data Warehouse,” said Johan Glozman, Head of Product Management for ACA Technology’s NorthPoint Data Warehouse. “By improving the speed and capacity for handling Big Data as well as introducing enhancements for facilitating regulatory compliance, we continue to help our clients modernize their data management capabilities, maximize their time and budgets, and return the focus to their data.”
