ICT 4410 - Data Warehousing Design
Organizations with vision and courage are gaining competitive advantage by implementing data warehouses. Under the guidance of an executive sponsor, a team of data administrators, database specialists, and organizational analysts creates these contemporary decision support environments. Building a data warehouse is fundamentally different than building a subject area database for an operational system. In this course students use such data warehouse (DW) concepts as partitioning, granularity, record of source, and metadata as they learn how to build a viable decision support environment. Students further their understanding of such topics as architect development, data migration and integration, use of operational data stores, and transactional systems. Prerequisite: ICT 4400
