"This book is the definitive guide for serious Oracle8i professionals and is required reading for all Oracle data warehousing practitioners."-Shannon Platz, Senior Director, Business Intelligence & Warehouse Global Service Line, Oracle Corporation

A complete hands-on guide to Oracle8i and earlier versions In this updated and expanded edition of their critically acclaimed Oracle8 Data Warehousing, Gary Dodge and Tim Gorman clearly explain everything you'll need to know to build and manage a large, high-performance data warehouse using Oracle8i.
