I am new to data warehouse and data warehouse design

Can any one tell me the advantages of working with a regular database design compared to working with a Dimensional design?

The reason for my question is I am working with cognos8 and i notice some of the queries are created using Database objects and some with Dimensional objects and i wondered why?
