Design Considerations For Building a Data Warehouse for an Open. □VINCENT RAINARDI is a data warehouse architect and developer with more than 12 years of experience in IT. He started working with data.
For example, to learn more about your company's sales data, you can build a data warehouse that concentrates on sales. Using this data warehouse, you can answer questions such as "Who was our best customer for this item last year?
Integrated Integration is closely related to subject orientation. Data warehouses must put data from disparate sources into a consistent format.
They must resolve such problems as naming conflicts and inconsistencies among units of measure. When they achieve this, they are said to be integrated.
Nonvolatile Nonvolatile means that, once entered into the data warehouse, data should not change. This is logical because the purpose of a data warehouse is to enable you to analyze what has occurred.
Time Variant A data warehouse's focus on change over time is what is meant by the term time variant. In order to discover trends in business, analysts need large amounts of data.
This is very much in contrast to online transaction processing OLTP systems, where performance requirements demand that historical data be moved to an archive. Data warehouses and OLTP systems have very different requirements. Here are some examples of differences between typical data warehouses and OLTP systems: Workload Data warehouses are designed to accommodate ad hoc queries.
You might not know the workload of your data warehouse in advance, so a data warehouse should be optimized to perform well for a wide variety of possible query operations.
OLTP systems support only predefined operations. Building a Data Warehouse: With Examples in SQL Server describes how to build a data warehouse completely from scratch and shows practical examples on how to do it.
Author Vincent Rainardi also describes some practical issues he has experienced that developers are likely to encounter in their first data warehousing project, along with solutions and advice. The book is organized as follows. In the beginning of this book chapters 1 through 6 , you learn how to build a data warehouse, for example, defining the architecture, understanding the methodology, gathering the requirements, designing the data models, and creating the databases.
Then in chapters 7 through 10, you learn how to populate the data warehouse, for example, extracting from source systems, loading the data stores, maintaining data quality, and utilizing the metadata. After you populate the data warehouse, in chapters 11 through 15, you explore how to present data to users using reports and multidimensional databases and how to use the data in the data warehouse for business intelligence, customer relationship management, and other purposes.
Chapters 16 and 17 wrap up the book: After you have built your data warehouse, before it can be released to production, you need to test it thoroughly. After your application is in production, you need to understand how to administer data warehouse operation.
