DATA WAREHOUSE CONCEPTS AND DESIGN
Credit points: 15
Data warehouse underpins most enterprise systems like enterprise resource planning, customer relationship management and supply chain management systems. A data warehouse is designed to provide information from a variety of sources within and outside an organisation to the enterprise systems. This subject introduces students to evolution of data warehouse technology, data warehouse terms and concepts, data warehouse design, data sourcing, organisational issues involved with designing and implementing a data warehouse. Especially, the multidimensional modelling with various data warehouse design schemas such as star schema and snowflake schema are the focuses of the subject. Furthermore, the related important technologies of Extract-Transformation-Load (ETL) system and Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) approaches are discussed in the subject. Several real world case studies are used to explain and illustrate various aspects of this subject.
