Review:

In The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit, authors Ralph Kimball, Laura Reeves, Margy Ross, and Warren Thornthwaite present a structure for undertaking the awesome task of implementing a data warehouse. As part of a rather select group of professionals actually experienced in building data warehouses, the authors attempt to convey their expertise about how to approach the job. The book focuses on the "Star Lifecycle"--a high-level project-planning approach to evolving existing information systems into an ever-changing data-warehouse solution. --Stephen Plain

From the Publisher:

Ralph Kimball's bestselling The Data Warehouse Toolkit explained how to design data warehouses using the dimensional modeling technique he developed. This perfect complement to that book shows how dimensional design fits in the overall lifecycle of planning, designing, developing, and deploying data marts and data warehouses. Based on the real experiences of four leading data warehouse developers and offering timely case studies, this book provides developers with the fine details on how to master each step in the process. It also covers how to design data marts that are well integrated with the overall data warehouse design.
