Simplicity lies on the other side of complexity. What may look complex on the surface can often be demystified as long as the moving parts are known. Below is a screenshot of the model a colleague of mine built to track the usage of Claims Data. I am more interested in where it is specifically stored.
Looking at the entire model is daunting but all I need to do is zoom-in to "Claims Data" and I can see that this data is stored in the Oracle ODS. Case closed!
We think Eric Berlow summed it up very well. All it takes is a bit of focus.
