Distributed Data Warehousing Using Web Technology

How to Build a More Cost-Effective and Flexible Warehouse
A "data warehouse" is? This is a structured database to support business decision making. A data warehouse, organizes, analyze and synthesize large amounts of raw data - this is understandable and useful to employees. Until recently, all data stored in central storage means monolithic. It was difficult to manage and maintain costly and slow to operate.

Internet technology has changed all that forever! This profound book, administrators and professionals in information technology to configure and use distributed data warehouses have a clear picture of the eyes - more than one computer (via Internet technology to the network) to use for storage of access and data necessary için. Kitap takes a look at:
  • Functions and benefits that are needed to establish a distributed data store
  • This type of functions and data, web information technology-enabled, object technology as residential complex technical issues, and much more
  • What you can offer a complete range of data warehousing - and how to exploit
  • Submit to create a data warehouse and how to justify a business case.

The Data Model Resource Book, Vol. 1: A Library of Universal Data Models for All Enterprises

Basic functions of the trade to create the database fast and reliable proven

This database is designed for basic business functions provided in a simple and inexpensive, because industry experts, the book was first published in March 1997 raved about the resources of the data model. To draw attention to more specific requirements of different companies, while adding a companion volume Len Silverston, revised and updated in the first edition a great success. Each unit comes with a CD-ROM, sold separately. Each database on CD-ROM and the need for companies and individuals will receive a portion of the cost of development time that you allow a third party, electronic address book is a ready to use templates to design offers a powerful way to build from scratch.

Updated data models in the first edition of the CD-ROM, the developers of the source databases to quickly install a basic set of data models to support a wide range of business functions and allows you to changing.

(Computer Shopper February 2002): "I thought you were well thought out and well explained in the models of books"


"Data Model Resource Book, Revised Edition, Volume 1, I'm a data architecture, data architecture (Zachman Framework row one or two) is not limited to managing a high level of the best books ever seen;? . This is a common, industry-specific logic models and can be customized to meet the needs of providing data and drawings. Finally, in a model with a frame whose upper levels and below includes a rich high-level logic designs reservoir models, and SQL programs, including data architecture schemes stars. Models as a starting point for your model or data models, drawings and use scripts to check existing models and a reference to the company that will help create data architecture, the entry may not be familiar topics. Book offers several models of different levels and techniques of conversion tips and techniques to achieve appropriate levels of abstraction models. Sample tables (eg data) allow the modeling of life. I use the last twenty years and numerous projects in the year of the first edition gramlayabilir? Is a valuable resource for me? "
- Van Scott, Sonata Consulting, Inc. President

"Len Silverston typical areas of the company in question for various industries for a wide range of generic data models and a very useful summary of the volume of two (but not too generic) at one point was in all probability find a modeler Data. Clearly, well organized, written, and most of a company some of the information needs of perverse and difficult matter drops below this race is clearly a valuable resource for any assignment of one before entering a modeling shoot. Here if we did not find any evidence of a pattern very similar to the face can be used for almost any situation. "
- William G. Smith, President, William G. Smith & Associates

"In today's fast targeted e-world, it can be difficult to change the data structures is no longer acceptable to bury business constraints. Architects data and data architecture to capture the complex requirements need reformat the unpredictable vision models futures. Len novice and advanced data models to provide a flexible data provides an excellent starting point for the architects. These models position an organization for the company, old rules. Successful implementation and customization, and business enterprise management to reflect the principles and rules of the organization to transform itself provides proactive. Thus, models based on data architecture, Len and procedures, customizing them, work become the basis of design changes. "
- Barbara von Halle, founder of Knowledge Partners, Inc., co-author of the manual database design relational

"This book is a universal long and a must for any company implementing data models. Includes universal models of data and models to apply the skills and can help all companies regardless of their level of experience. Better meet the needs of many books, data models, but little in the way of practical advice offered. These books fill this gap and should be used by all companies. "
- Ron Powell, Publisher, DM Review

"Computer services companies worldwide require quality systems, built faster. This book, or even weeks before a program, the day to expand and form the basis of standards for data modelers can break the project. I LL Bean, Inc., a valuable resource for my modeling effort data collection resource model, a revised edition, Volume 1 found, and I think it is an important part of any vehicle modelers. "
- Susan T. Oliver, enterprise data architects, LL Bean, Inc.

I did not believe in saying the company is essentially the same for all companies looking for a data model of the company were hired by a company, "When I introduced three years ago, the model data source. Is a way I felt after a little analysis with Len Silverston using, we actually had the same little difference: customers, accounts, employees, benefits, and had everything you need to do in any organization, and we're all Len book has been adapted to the product component of a larger framework of all data were ready to move forward command to create a CD-ROM accompanies the book ensures that the files very quickly, the Oracle model. Then began to draw the map of all types of detailed data on the business model, and here we account number for all these different spellings and typographical errors could not find a place.

Volume 2 provides the best features of this new edition: industry specific data models. I began to see interesting designs to penetrate this volume. For example, an airline reservation, the reservation if you are a restaurant or hotel. (In fact, we have something like the oil industry -. Allowance)

Another concept of the book has changed my thinking and word by word "party". Recently, a computer online at the same time employees has a project that could function as a client and the user. Team had a disagreement with a name for this entity, but after reviewing the reference manual data model, I realized that we are a party of three documents.

Your job is to implement a data warehouse project or borrow ideas get any item to the next operational database, I also book models of data sources, revised edition, volumes 1 and 2, the Bible for guidance on the design. "

The book takes this theme and the future of data storage and the level of the architecture and the level of technology, says it is now technologically possible. The book was a top-down perspective: looking at the overall architecture and then dive into the issues underlying the components. Building a data warehouse for people who use or see this advantage and can determine what the future: what to buy the new technology, data warehouse, how to plan extensions to warrant expenditure and how you can save the current system - in practice.
