Implementation of the EDW EMMS RSS (Replicated Source System) to support the ability to capture intra-day transactions from the EMMS source databases, as well as support the ability to capture information to support point-in-time reporting. The EMMS RSS is a replicated database copy of the source system that will be used to transfer information into the EDW EMMS ODS (Operational Data Store). The EDW EMMS ODS is a separate subproject – 40042_07.
Ensure availability of reliable, accurate and timely information
Provide the ability to capture intra-day transactions that will ensure all EMMS data is being captured (and not just a snapshot of data at the end of the day), as well as near real-time data that can then be used to support market monitoring reporting
Store the data using point-in-time fields that will allow reporting of historical periods.
