Abstract

Data warehouse was first discussed by Devlin and Murphy in 1988 [DM88]. They described a read-only database for integration of historical operation data and propose tools for user interaction with this database for decision support and analysis. However, Inmon’s definition has received the most attention over the years. According to Inmon [Inm05], “a data warehouse is a subject oriented, non volatile, integrated and time variant collection of data in favor of decision making”.
