Bill CarmadaThere are now thousands of functioning, efficient data warehouses, and the number one lesson that has been learned is this: successful data warehouses never stop evolving. The best of them are built and managed from a lifecycle perspective by IT professionals who are "half DBA and half MBA." The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit delivers actionable skills and tools for creating data warehouses flexible enough to survive the most dynamic organization.
Kimball shows how to build a series of high-performance, understandable data marts that deliver business results immediately-and can be organized into an enterprise-wide data warehouse as you move forward. You'll master crucial dimensional modeling techniques, and learn to build a "Data Warehouse Bus Architecture"-a backbone all your warehouse components can connect to. You'll discover how backroom, "front room," infrastructure, metadata and Internet components can all be architected for consistency, performance and security. The accompanying CD-ROM is full of checklists, templates and forms, plus a complete sample design.
Don't try to build a house without a plan-or a data warehouse without The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit.
