A Definition of Data Warehousing


There is a great deal of confusion over the meaning of data warehousing. Simply defined, a data warehouse is a place for data, whereas data warehousing describes the process of defining, populating, and using a data warehouse. Creating, populating, and querying a data warehouse typically carries an extremely high price tag, but the return on investment can be substantial. Over 95% of the Fortune 1000 have a data warehouse initiative underway in some form.

storage and warehousing  but the cost in storage can be extreme. Now that the warehouse has been built and populated, it becomes possible to extract meaningful information from it that will provide a competitive advantage and a return on investment. This is done with tools that fall within the general rubric of Business Intelligence . Business Intelligence (BI): A very broad field indeed, it contains technologies such as Decision Support Systems (DSS), Executive Information Systems (EIS), On-Line Analytical Processing (OLAP), Read More

The Necessity of Data Warehousing


An explanation of the origins of data warehousing and why it is a crucial technology that allows businesses to gain competitive advantage. Issues regarding technology selection and access to historical 'legacy' data are also discussed.

storage and warehousing  as DASD (Direct Access Storage Device) were extremely expensive on a per-megabyte basis. Therefore, much of the needed data was stored offline, typically on magnetic tape. Processing power was very expensive as measured in MIPS (Millions of Instructions per Second). Mainframes had to reserve most of their processing power for day-to-day operations, reports could only be run overnight in batch mode (without interaction from the user). Relational database technology was still in its infancy, and server Read More

Teradata and RainStor Join Forces for 2011


A recent post from Doug Henschen in InformationWeek detailed the newsworthy alliance of data warehousing vendor Teradata and online storage specialist RainStor, which highlights the importance that big data markets are acquiring. Big data is turning into "giant data," and organizations that manage very large amounts of information are demanding that software vendors enable the management of

storage and warehousing  companies to offer online storage at competitive prices. Henschen quotes Chris Twogood, senior director of product and services marketing at Teradata, as saying we''re trying to position this as being as cost-effective as tape without compression; but the problem with tape storage is that it''s off line. This is a significant move for Teradata in terms of repositioning its role within the big data market by improving its compression and data storing structure and allowing Teradata to take advantage of Read More

Real-time In-memory Technologies Do Not Make Data Warehousing Obsolete


The benefits of well thought-out architecture for designing and implementing large-scale DW environments are well-documented. Perhaps the best known of the DW architectures is the Corporate Information Factory. Since the creation of this architecture, there have been many technological advances, making its implementation faster, more scalable, and better performing. The data warehouse is no longer “off limits” to the business community; self-service BI, more sophisticated types of analytics, and true experimental (data science) analyses can now be performed with ease, and an increase in productivity and agility and flexibility of overall BI deployments is the result. Learn more in this white paper authored by one of the co-developers of the corporate information factory DW architecture.
