Plan, Design, and Document High-Performance Data Warehouses

Set up a reliable, secure decision-support infrastructure using the cuttingedge techniques contained in this comprehensive volume. Data Warehouse Design: Modern Principles and Methodologies presents a practical design approach based on solid software engineering principles. Find out how to interview end users, construct expressive conceptual schemata and translate them into relational schemata, and design state-of-the-art ETL procedures. You will also learn how to integrate heterogeneous data sources, implement star and snowflake schemata, manage dynamic and irregular hierarchies, and fine-tune performance by materializing and fragmenting views.

  • Work with data- and requirement-driven methodological approaches
  • Create a reconciled database to boost data mart architecture
  • Capture and expressively represent end-user requirements
  • Build a conceptual data mart schema using the Dimensional Fact Model
  • Estimate data mart volume and workload
  • Improve performance using advanced logical modeling techniques
  • Extract, transform, cleanse, and load data from operational sources
  • Use sophisticated indexing techniques to optimize query execution plans
  • Comprehensively document data warehouse projects
  • Discover innovative business intelligence techniques

Book News Annotation:

The authors (professors of computer science and technology at the U. of Bologna, Italy) describe design techniques for data warehousing for database designers, companies, and institutions interested in decision support systems and for students enrolled in advanced course in information systems and databases. They describe the techniques within the context of a comprehensive design methodology that "is centered on the use of a conceptual model that can show the specific features of data warehouse applications, while being based on an easy-to-use and simple formalism that designers can use to design and create better projects." Chapters cover the data warehouse system lifecycle, analysis and reconciliation of data sources, user requirement analysis, conceptual modeling, conceptual design, logical modeling, logical design, data-staging design, indexes for data warehouses, physical design, data warehouse project documentation, a case study, and the use of data warehouses for business intelligence. Readers should already be familiar with the basics of relational and Entity-Relationship models, as well as with information systems and information system design.
