Data Warehouse Software Overview

What is Data Warehouse Software?

A data warehouse is usually a relational database, designed specifically for data analysis instead of standard transactional processing. The data warehouse acts as the conduit between operational data stores and the gaining of insight based on composite data. Slices of data from the warehouse—usually summary data for a single department like sales or finance—are stored in a “data mart” for quicker access. Data warehouses from full-stack vendors are often sold as standalone products that must be integrated with other tools.

In order for a data warehouse to be an effective decision-making tool, the first important task is to extract the data from the various data sources and load it into the warehouse where it is normalized (organized into tables while cleaning the data and removing redundancy and inconsistencies). This is achieved through a process called Extract, Transform Load (ETL). Once it has been appropriately structured it is then available for querying and analysis.

The data manipulated in an ETL process can come from any source including:

  • Flat files
  • Excel data
  • Application data like CRM or ERP data
  • Mainframe application data

Perhaps the most difficult part of the process is the “Transform” component, where not only must the data be cleansed and any duplicates removed, but the software also has to resolve data consistency issues and apply rules to consistently convert data to the appropriate form for the data warehouse ore repository. Different enterprise applications might have different naming conditions for the same entities and the ETL software is able to reconcile these different naming conventions.
