As it is with building a house, most of the work necessary to build a data warehouse is neither visible nor obvious when looking at the completed product. While it may be easy to plan for a data warehouse that incorporates all the right concepts, taking the steps needed to create a warehouse that is as functional and user-friendly as it is theoretically sound, is not especially easy. That's the challenge that Building and Maintaininga Data Warehouse answers. Based on a foundation of industry-accepted principles, this work provides an easy-to-follow approach that is cohesive and holistic. By offering the perspective of a successful data warehouse, as well as that of a failed one, this workdetails those factors that must be accomplished and those that are best avoided.
