Project Initialization – Database and Source ERP Installation
In the first chapters of this book we have seen many much theoretical aspects of the BI. We started with a general introduction, a chapter dedicated to project management, and also another chapter dedicated to SQL introduction. But at the end of the day, until now we haven't done anything practical so far, so it's time to start getting our hands on the development of the solution. Before starting, however, we need to install our source ERP, where the data will come from. After installing and configuring it, we will mess with it around for a while, and then we will select our database to store the datawarehouse.
