A proper architecture is significant to cope with complex requirements of today’s large-scale Data Warehouses. We compare the assignment of so-called reference architectures with an architecture of dedicated layers to satisfactorily face those requirements. Moreover, we point out additional expenses and resulting advantages of this layered approach.
