Why a Separate Data Warehouse?

  • High performance for both systems
    • DBMS— tuned for OLTP: access methods, indexing, concurrency control, recovery
    • Warehouse—tuned for OLAP: complex OLAP queries, multidimensional view, consolidation
  • Different functions and different data:
    • missing data: Decision support requires historical data which operational DBs do not typically maintain
    • data consolidation: DS requires consolidation (aggregation, summarization) of data from heterogeneous sources
    • data quality: different sources typically use inconsistent data representations, codes and formats which have to be reconciled
  • Note: There are more and more systems which perform OLAP analysis directly on relational databases
