What is a Data Warehouse?


   The definition of a data warehouse has taken on many meanings and interpretations throughout the years. But at its core, a data warehouse represents a consolidated view of an entity's data – an integration point for all sources into one vision of the organization. The goal of a data warehouse is to turn data into something meaningful through integration, cleansing, standardizing and improving the data from its original source. This allows companies and organizations to make better decisions about their direction and status of their business.


Why is Data Warehouse Planning and Execution Important?

   A data warehouse project is like few others, it is labyrinth in its proportions. It is therefore critical that proper planning and project management techniques be employed when a data warehouse project is launched. It is also important to continue to implement project management principles throughout the lifecycle of the project.
