By Ralph Kimball, Laura Reeves, Margy Ross, Warren Thornthwaite
The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit provides the underlying fundamentals and framework required for each component of the data warehouse lifecycle that will help ensure a successful data warehouse/decision support implementation.
How do you get from "I have an idea" to "I have a warehouse?" You must integrate many tasks and components, and coordinate the efforts of many people, to build a successful data warehouse. It's not enough to have the perfect data model, best-of-bread hardware and software, and smartest team members - you have to get them to work together. The Business Dimensional Lifecycle ensures that the right pieces are brought together in the right order (and at the right time) for success.
