Data Warehouse - Business Intelligence Lifecycle Overview by Warren Thronthwaite
This slide deck describes the Kimball approach from the best-selling Data Warehouse Toolkit, 2nd Edition. It was presented to the Bay Area Microsoft Business Intelligence User Group in October 2012.
Starting with business requirements and project definition, the lifecycle branches out into three tracks: Technical, Data and Applications. You will learn:
* The major steps in the Lifecycle and what needs to happen in each one.
* Why business requirements are so important and how they influence all major decisions across the entire DW/BI system.
* Key tools for prioritizing business requirements and creating an enterprise information framework.
* How to break up a DW/BI system into doable increments that add real business value and can be completed in a reasonable time frame.
