Book News Annotation:
The data warehouse enables companies to collect, store, integrate, retrieve, and analyze data rapidly, without interfering with operational applications. The authors explain how the data warehouse filters, reconfigures, and integrates operational data to maximize its usefulness as a decision-support tool; they show how it can supply both summary data to support strategic decisions and detailed data for tactical decisions; and they demonstrate how data can be manipulated to provide a variety of perspectives.
