Summary

The technology for compiling data has evolved to the point where most organizations now amass information faster than they can use it. The bad news is that most of that data is disparate, scattered across different databases and platforms. The time has come to tame the data chaos, and this invaluable resource shows you how. Michael H. Brackett schools you in a variety of techniques for creating a cohesive data structure that everyone in your organization can use. Step-by-step, he guides you through the entire process of planning, building, and programming a data warehouse tailored to your organization's needs. You learn how to prepare and evaluate existing data for a data warehouse, cross reference data so it's easy to find in all corporate locations, prepare data for client/server systems, improve the consistency and quality of existing and future data, and manage a data warehouse.

The Data Warehouse Challenge is an indispensable tool for database administrators and developers, systems programmers and analysts, and all those involved with helping their organizations rise to the challenge of taming data chaos.
