    • Data Warehouse A decision support database that is maintained separately from the organization’s operational database Collection of data this is – subject-oriented – integrated – time-variant – nonvolatile
    • Data Warehouse — Subject-Oriented • Organized around major subjects, such as customer, product, sales. • Focusing on the modeling and analysis of data for decision makers, not on daily operations or transaction processing. • Provide a simple and concise view around particular subject issues by excluding data that are not useful in the decision support process.
    • Data Warehouse — Integrated • Constructed by integrating multiple, heterogeneous data sources – relational databases, flat files, on-line transaction records • Data cleaning and data integration – Ensure consistency in naming conventions, encoding structures, attribute measures, etc. among different data sources • e.g., Hotel price: currency, tax, breakfast covered, etc. – Data is converted when moved to the warehouse.
    • Data Warehouse — Time Variant • The time horizon for data warehouse is significantly longer than that of operational systems. – Operational database: current value data. – Data warehouse: provides information from a historical perspective (e.g., past 5-10 years) • Every key structure in the data warehouse contains an element of time, explicitly or implicitly
    • Data Warehouse — Non-Volatile • A physically separate store of data transformed from the operational environment. • Operational update of data does not occur in the data warehouse environment. – Does not require transaction processing, recovery, and concurrency control mechanisms – Requires only two operations in data accessing: • initial loading of data and access of data.
    • Data Warehouse vs. Heterogeneous DBMS • Traditional heterogeneous DB integration – Build wrappers/integrators on top of heterogeneous databases – Query driven approach • When a query is posed to a client site, a meta-dictionary is used to translate the query into queries appropriate for the individual heterogeneous sites involved, and results are integrated into a global answer set • Complex information filtering, compete for resources with local processing • Data warehouse: update-driven, high performance – Information from heterogeneous sources is integrated in advance and stored in warehouses for direct query and analysis
    • Data Warehouse vs. Operational DBMS • OLTP (on-line transaction processing) – Major task of traditional relational DBMS – Day-to-day operations: purchasing, inventory, banking, manufacturing, payroll, registration, accounting, etc. • OLAP (on-line analytical processing) – Major task of data warehouse system – Data analysis and decision making • Distinct features (OLTP vs. OLAP): – Users and system orientation: transaction vs. decision support – Data contents: current, detailed vs. historical, consolidated – Database design: ER + application vs. star schema + subject – View: current, local vs. evolutionary, integrated – Access patterns: update vs. read-only but complex queries
    • OLTP vs. OLAP OLTP OLAP users clerk, IT professional knowledge worker function day to day operations decision support DB design application-oriented subject-oriented data current, up-to-date historical, detailed, flat relational summarized, multidimensional isolated integrated, consolidated usage repetitive ad-hoc access read/write multiple large scans index on primary key unit of work short, simple transaction complex query # records accessed tens millions #users thousands hundreds DB size 100MB-GB 100GB-TB metric transaction throughput query throughput, response
    • Why Separate Data Warehouse? • Maintain high performance for both systems – DBMS— tuned for OLTP: access methods, indexing, concurrency control, recovery – Warehouse—tuned for OLAP: complex OLAP queries, multidimensional view, consolidation. • Different data and function – missing data: decision support requires historical data which operational DBs do not typically maintain – data consolidation: DS requires consolidation (aggregation, summarization) of data from heterogeneous sources – data quality: different sources typically use inconsistent data representations, codes and formats which have to be reconciled
    • From Tables and Spreadsheets to Data Cubes • A data warehouse is based on a multidimensional data model which views data in the form of a data cube • A data cube, such as sales, allows data to be modeled and viewed in multiple dimensions – Dimension tables, such as item (item_name, brand, type), or time(day, week, month, quarter, year) – Fact table contains measures (such as dollars_sold) and keys to each of the related dimension tables • In data warehousing literature n-D base cube is called a base cuboid. The lattice of cuboids forms a data cube.
    • Multi-dimensional “cube” Sales by Item, Time, Location, Supplier Time Item SALES Supplier Location
    • Cube: A Lattice of Cuboids all 0-D(apex) cuboid time item location supplier 1-D cuboids time,item time,location item,location location,supplier 2-D cuboids time,supplier item,supplier time,item,location time,location,supplier 3-D cuboids time,item,supplier item,location,supplier time, item, location, supplier 4-D(base) cuboid
    • yearly data (keep all data) quarterly data old quarterly data (up to 20 years) (archived) old monthly data retail monthly data monthly data old monthly data (archived) (up to 15 years) (up to 15 years) (archived) old weekly data weekly data special event (archived) (up to 7 years) effects (up to 30 years) old detailed data current detailed data (archived) (up to 3 years)
    • Conceptual Modeling of Data Warehouses Modeling data warehouses: dimensions & measures – Star schema: A fact table in the middle connected to a set of dimension tables – Snowflake schema: A refinement of star schema where some dimensional hierarchy is normalized into a set of smaller dimension tables, forming a shape similar to snowflake – Fact constellations: Multiple fact tables share dimension tables, viewed as a collection of stars, therefore called galaxy schema or fact constellation
    • Star Schema Example time time_key item day item_key day_of_the_week Sales Fact Table item_name month brand quarter time_key type year supplier_type item_key branch_key branch location location_key branch_key location_key branch_name units_sold street branch_type city dollars_sold province_or_state country avg_sales Measures
    • Snowflake Schema example time time_key item day item_key day_of_the_week Sales Fact Table item_name month brand quarter time_key type year item_key supplier_type branch_key branch location location location_key location_key location_key branch_key units_sold street street branch_name city_key city city branch_type dollars_sold province_or_state city_key country avg_sales city province_or_street Measures country
    • Fact Constellation example time Shipping Fact Table time_key item day time_key item_key day_of_the_week Sales Fact Table item_name item_key month brand quarter time_key type shipper_key year supplier_type item_key from_location branch_key to_location branch location_key location dollars_cost branch_key units_sold location_key units_shipped branch_name street branch_type dollars_sold city province_or_street shipper avg_sales country shipper_key Multiple fact tables, sharing dimensions shipper_name location_key Collection of stars – fact constellation or shipper_type galaxy schema
    • Data warehouse vs. data marts • Data warehouse – Enterprise-wide scope – Subjects that span the organization – Fact constellation used to model multiple, interrelated subjects • Data mart – Department-wide scope – Departmental subset of data warehouse – Star, snowflake schema Star schema is more efficient and thereby popular
    • Computing Measures • Measure: numerical value at each point in the data cube e.g. <time=“Q1”, location=“Chicago”, item=“xyz”>: avg-amount • Need to be able to efficiently compute measures
    • Measure types • Distributive: E.g., count(), sum(), min(), max(). Result derived by applying the function to n aggregate values is the same as that derived by applying the function on all the data without partitioning. • Algebraic: E.g., avg(), min_N(), standard_deviation(). Can be computed by an algebraic function with M arguments (where M is a bounded integer), each of which is obtained by applying a distributive aggregate function. • Holistic: E.g., median(), mode(), rank(). There is no constant bound on the storage size needed to describe a sub-aggregate. No constant function with M arguments (constant M) that characterizes the computation. Can be difficult to compute efficiently – approximate computation
    • Concept Hierarchy Example: Location dimension all all region Europe ... North_America country Germany ... Spain Canada ... Mexico city Frankfurt ... Vancouver ... Toronto
    • Concept hierarchies Full or partial ordering Industry Region Year Category Country Quarter Product City Month Week Office Day Set-grouping hierarchy ($0..$1000] e.g. price ($0..$1000] ($0..$1000] ($0..$1000] ($0..$1000] ($0..$1000] ($0..$1000] ($0..$1000] ($0..$1000] ($0..$1000] Multiple hierarchies for an attribute price: {inexpensive, moderately_priced, expensive}
    • OLAP examples Sales volume as a function of product, month, and region Dimensions: Product, Location, Time Hierarchical summarization paths on gi Industry Region Year Re Category Country Quarter Product Product City Month Week Office Day Month

    • Browsing a Data Cube Visualization OLAP Interactive manipulation
    • Typical OLAP Operations • Roll up (drill-up): summarize data – by climbing up hierarchy or by dimension reduction • Drill down (roll down): reverse of roll-up – from higher level summary to lower level summary or detailed data, or introducing new dimensions • Slice and dice: – project and select • Pivot (rotate): – reorient the cube, visualization, 3D to series of 2D planes. • Other operations – drill across: involving (across) more than one fact table – drill through: through the bottom level of the cube to its back- end relational tables (using SQL)
    • Data Warehouse Design: Four Views • Top-down view • selection of the relevant information necessary for the data warehouse based on current and future needs • Data source view • exposes the information being captured, stored, and managed by operational systems (E/R models, CASE, etc) • Data warehouse view • fact tables and dimension tables, pre-calculated totals, counts, etc. Source information, date, time for historical context • Business query view • perspectives of data in the warehouse from the view of end- user
    • Data Warehouse Design Process • Top-down, bottom-up approaches or a combination – Top-down: Starts with overall design and planning (mature) – Bottom-up: Starts with experiments and prototypes (rapid) • From software engineering point of view – Waterfall: structured and systematic analysis at each step – Spiral: rapid generation of increasingly functional systems, short turn around time, quick turn around • Typical data warehouse design process – Choose a business process to model, e.g., orders, invoices, etc. – Choose the grain (atomic level of data) of the business process – Choose the dimensions that will apply to each fact table record – Choose the measure that will populate each fact table record
    • Multi-Tiered DW Architecture Monitor & OLAP Server other Metadata sources Integrator Analysis Operational Extract Query Transform Data Serve Reports DBs Load Refresh Warehouse Data mining Data Marts Data Sources Data Storage OLAP Engine Front-End Tools
    • Three Data Warehouse Models • Enterprise warehouse – collects all of the information about subjects spanning the entire organization • Data Mart – a subset of corporate-wide data that is of value to a specific groups of users. Its scope is confined to specific, selected groups, such as marketing data mart • Independent vs. dependent (directly from warehouse) data mart • Virtual warehouse – A set of views over operational databases – Only some of the possible summary views may be materialized
    • Data Marts • Data warehouse designed to meet the needs of a specific group of users • Should (but may not) be designed with corporate standards and accessibility in mind – incorporate standards for hardware, software, networking, DBMS, naming conventions, etc. – vendor’s attempt to bypass IT and sell directly to end-users?
    • Data Warehouse Development: A Recommended Approach Multi-Tier Data Warehouse Distributed Data Marts Enterprise Data Data Data Mart Mart Warehouse Model refinement Model refinement Define a high-level corporate data model
    • OLAP Server Types • Relational OLAP (ROLAP) – Use relational or extended-relational DBMS to store and manage warehouse data and OLAP middleware to support missing pieces – Include optimization of DBMS backend, implementation of aggregation navigation logic, and additional tools and services – greater scalability • Multidimensional OLAP (MOLAP) – Array-based multidimensional storage engine (sparse matrix techniques) – fast indexing to pre-computed summarized data • Hybrid OLAP (HOLAP) – User flexibility, e.g., low level: relational, high-level: array • Specialized SQL servers – specialized support for SQL queries over star/snowflake schemas
    • Metadata Repository Meta data is the data defining warehouse objects. It has the following kinds – Description of the structure of the warehouse • schema, view, dimensions, hierarchies, derived data defn, data mart locations and contents – Operational meta-data • data lineage (history of migrated data and transformation path), currency of data (active, archived, or purged), monitoring information (warehouse usage statistics, error reports, audit trails) – The algorithms used for summarization – The mapping from operational environment to the data warehouse – Data related to system performance • warehouse schema, view and derived data definitions – Business data • business terms and definitions, ownership of data, charging policies
    • Data Warehouse Back-End Tools, Utilities • Data extraction: – get data from multiple, heterogeneous, and external sources • Data cleaning: – detect errors in the data and rectify them when possible • Data transformation: – convert data from legacy or host format to warehouse format • Load – sort, summarize, consolidate, compute views, check integrity, and build indices and partitions • Refresh – propagate the updates from the data sources to the warehouse
    • Advanced examples Exploration of Data Cubes Hypothesis-driven: exploration by user, huge search space Discovery-driven – pre-computed measures indicate exceptions, guide user in the data analysis, at all levels of aggregation – Exception: significantly different from the value anticipated, based on a statistical model – Visual cues such as background color are used to reflect the degree of exception of each cell – Computation of exception indicator can be included in cube construction SelfExp: degree of surprise in cell, relative to values at same levels of aggregation InExp: degree of surprise somewhere beneath the cell, if we drill down PathExp: degree of surprise for each drill down path from cell
    • Advanced examples Example: Discovery-driven exploration
    • Advanced examples Complex Aggregation at Multiple Granularities • Ex. Total sales in 2000 by Item, Region, Month, with subtotals • Ex. Grouping by all subsets of {item, region, month}, find the maximum price in 2000 for each group, and the total sales generated by all maximum-price-sales • Ex. Among the max-price-sales, find the min and max shelf life. Find the fraction of the total sales due to cases that have min shelf life.
    • Advances examples Supplier Supplier Sales Sales #units, %sales $value Product Product Sales #units, Sales volume as a % of total units sold $value of Product Product Ordering Group sales by contiguous 10-day intervals. Supplier Sales 10 day Moving-avg of Sales, by Product #units, $value Order Products by Sales-$ and group into Product deciles of decreasing performance.
