  • we invent something only if there is a need for that thing….today we are going to see what data warehousing is…data warehouse is evolved to satisfy some needs….we will see some of these need now
  • When we need to extract data from various sources, some may be manually maintained on paper, some on different legacy systems and integrating the data is a laborious work. Many systems provide some DTS systems to convert data in appropriate format and provide necessary transformations
  • We need subject oriented and multidimensional data amodel fro data warehouse which facilitates online analysis


  • 1. Introduction to Data Warehousing By MAHESH.AMPOLU
  • 2. Necessity is the mother of invention Why Data Warehouse?
  • 3. ScenarioUnilever is a company with branches at UK,India, America and Japan. The Sales Managerwants quarterly sales report. Each branch has aseparate operational system.
  • 4. Scenario 1 : Unilever company. India UK Sales per item type per branch Sales for first quarter. Manager America Japan
  • 5. Solution : Unilever company. Extract sales information from each database. Store the information in a common repository at a single site.
  • 6. Solution : Unilever company. India Report UK Query & Sales Data Analysis tools Manager WarehouseAmerica Japan
  • 7. Scenario :Hindustan Unilever is a small,new company.President of the company wants his company shouldgrow. He needs information so that he can makecorrect decisions.
  • 8. Solution : Improve the quality of data before loading it into the warehouse. Perform data cleaning and transformation before loading the data. Use query analysis tools to support adhoc queries.

  • 10. What is Data Warehouse??
  • 11. Inmons’s definition : A data warehouse is -subject-oriented, -integrated, -time-variant, -nonvolatilecollection of data in support of management’sdecision making process.
  • 12. Subject-oriented Data warehouse is organized around subjects such as sales,product,customer. It focuses on modeling and analysis of data for decision makers. Excludes data not useful in decision support process.
  • 13. Integration Data Warehouse is constructed by integrating multiple heterogeneous sources. Data Preprocessing are applied to ensure consistency. RDBMS Data Legacy Warehouse System Flat File Data Processing Data Transformation
  • 14. Integration In terms of data. – encoding structures. – Measurement of attributes. – physical attribute. of data remarks – naming conventions. – Data type format
  • 15. Time-variant Provides information from historical perspective e.g. past 5-10 years Every key structure contains either implicitly or explicitly an element of time
  • 16. Nonvolatile Data once recorded cannot be updated. Data warehouse requires two operations in data accessing – Initial loading of data – Access of data load access
  • 17. Data Warehousing Architecture
  • 18. Data Warehouse Architecture Data Warehouse server – almost always a relational DBMS,rarely flat files OLAP servers – to support and operate on multi-dimensional data structures Clients – Query and reporting tools – Analysis tools – Data mining tools
  • 19. OLTP vs OLAP
  • 20. Data Warehouse Schema Star Schema Fact Constellation Schema Snowflake Schema
  • 21. Star SchemaA star schema consists of at least one fact table and a number of dimension tables. Star Schema is highly recommended schema for SSAS cubes.
  • 22. Star SchemaStore Dimension Fact Table Time Dimension Store Key Store Key Period Key Store Name Product Key Year City Period Key Quarter State Units Month Region Price Product Key Product Desc Product DimensionBenefits: Easy to understand, easy to define hierarchies, reducesno. of physicaljoins.
  • 23. SnowFlake Schema Variant of star schema model. A single,large and central fact table and one or more tables for each dimension. Dimension tables are normalized i.e. split dimension table data into additional tables

  • 25. Fact Constellation Multiple fact tables share dimension tables. This schema is viewed as collection of stars hence called galaxy schema or fact constellation. Sophisticated application requires such schema.
