Data warehouse is split into two different databases, holding two different data sets:
• Central Lake: raw data from various systems (e.g. NetSuite), consolidated
• Analytics: reporting database, containing consolidated and aggregated data, cleansed per defined data quality checks. Layout it report-friendly, ensuring fast delivery and data analysis using various BI reporting tools (Tableau, SSRS)
There is, also, a third database, CentralLake_StagingArea, but it is a system database, to which, normally, end users must not have the access.

Architecture
Deployed in SQL Server.
ETL written using T-SQL, SSIS, and Python.
Utilizes Linked Servers (via ODBC) to pull data from NetSuite.
Has four independent steps:
1. Extraction from NetSuite (load to pre stage)
This step is solely based on versioning columns for 99% of tables (these columns are either LAST_MODIFIED_DATE or DATE_LAST_MODIFIED)
It extracts all data that have changed since the last time the ETL successfully propagated data to the CentralLake repository database
Data in the PreStage area are considered transient, and get overwritten every time the ETL is run
2. Load to the Staging area
3. load to target repository "CentralLake"
4. production of data marts
