As longtime data warehousing practitioners and former Microsoft insiders, authors Joy Mundy and Warren Thornthwaite have extensive experience in building and managing data warehouse (DW) and business intelligence (BI) systems. With this book, they share best practices for using SQL Server 2005 to build a successful DW/BI system. Covering the complete suite of data warehousing tools that accompanies SQL Server 2005, they focus on the full project lifecycle, including design, development, deployment, and maintenance.

You'll learn how and when to use BI tools such as Analysis Services, Integration Services, and the SQL Server database to accomplish various data warehousing tasks. A helpful case study used throughout the book provides examples of the techniques presented. You'll find practical guidance for every member of the data warehouse team and learn how to:

  • Identify high-value business requirements and build organizational support for the project
  • Design an information infrastructure for the enterprise using established dimensional design
  • Design and build a flexible and powerful ETL system to clean, align, and restructure data for business use
  • Provide decision makers with tools to analyze business problems and opportunities
  • Use data mining to uncover data relationships and trends
  • Build BI applications in Reporting Services
  • Maintain, secure, and operate the DW/BI system
