Product Description:

This work, aimed at enterprise computing professionals, provides a guide to data warehouse systems. It first explains what data warehouses are and how they can be used, and then lays out a step-by-step plan for designing and building them.

Review:

Q1: What is data warehousing?
A1: Storing and organizing large quantities of data, formerly dispersed, for efficient and strategic usage.

Q2: Is data warehousing just a buzzword or a 90's fad?
A2: Only if you'd call Henry Ford's assembly lines a 20's buzzword or fad!

In fact, warehousing is likely to be the keystone (or, architecturally speaking, "foundation") of business information architecture in the 21st century.

Despite the flurry of books on data warehousing that I have seen this year (reminiscent of the onslaught of Internet books in 1995), this, as of August, is the most impressive data warehousing book yet. It provides an historical context of dispersed data systems, describes how to work with legacy architectures (and legacy turf wars within an organization), and demonstrates how to realistically plan the consolidation of data and streamline the "construction of the warehouse." It also has several lucid overview chapters on data mining, multidimensional analyses and neural nets, so that you can perform useful analyses of all the data your organization has been collecting for years!

Oh my Ford, Winston, this is good book indeed.
