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

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.
