The way in which data warehouse developments and solutions are viewed is changing. The emphasis is less on the technological problems, many of which have been solved, and more on the day-to-day issues of living and working with a data warehouse. These issues include:
• Configuration/Change Management
• Managing and Improving Data Quality
• Engagement with the Enterprise Architecture • Enhancing Return on Investment
These issues affect both new developments and existing solutions. The solutions to these issues are information based and process driven, i.e. we need information about what is happening and why it is happening in the system in order to drive the processes in both the development and operational environments that manage it.
This white paper investigates the issues that are affecting the data warehouse environment. The paper will also look at how the issues might be addressed and at a tool that can help.
