Lots of good datawarehousing stuff here.  http://www.bizintelligencepipeline.com  For example try a search on ETL Tools.

Here's a comparison doc: http://www.dmreview.com/article_sub.cfm?articleId=3084

Although I can't stand 'Dummies' books the 'Datawarehousing for Dummies' is a great executive level DW overview and useful resource throught discovery, design, implementation and maintenance.

Thanks for the response. All the URLs mentioned are providing the concepts of Datawarehousing. But I want the concepts especially of DataStage. I have knoledge on DataStage but want to become expert on my own. If anyone provides the e-books or book names (hard copies so that i will buy the books) or URLs specific to DataStage, i will be very thankful.

You can start off by reading the following books:

Anahory S, & Dennis M,  “Data Warehousing in the Real World”, Pearson Education, 1997
and
Kimball R, “The Data Warehouse Toolkit”, John Wiley, 2nd Ed., 2002

For your information, Ralph Kimball is considered to be the "guru" in the Data Warehousing world.

I have read the two books mentioned above during my post-graduation studies and find them very rich in concepts and case-studies that would help you to gain an insight into the Data Warehousing world.

I also have not been able to find any books on DataStage.  Being that this product is in the upper right of the magic quadrant, that seems a bit surprising.

For anyone else looking, I did find these URLs a bit helpful:
