Hello,

There is lot of content and books available in the market which may lead you to know what is Data Warehousing.

In short Data warehousing is a Management decision support system which helps to take decision to the management.

It stores the analyzed results of the Data for a particular division (Sales, Purchase etc....) using Cubes.

Rule #1 in data ware house is that the dw is to support business decision making. Ask in general terms if your business users need "more" or "better" from your dw and proceed from there. Never redesign or install something new "just because".
Feel free to read books on new ideas so you can be ready but dont get excited about overhauling a dw for the latest buzzwords.

DW 2.0 isn't a product but an architecture. Is like Web 2.0. Did you see any company selling Web 2.0?

oh, my god, the PDF Victor you give me is from famous W H Inmon, I am currently searching data modelling, T-SQL tuning books and DW books:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0123743192/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0764599445/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

both from him and that's why I come and ask.

but I am suggested to read this book first:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1118530802/ref=ox_sc_act_title_7?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

as this is much close to real life than theory.

do you think that PDF is exactly copy of that DW 2.0 books ?

Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
Unfortunaly I'm not expert in DW but looks like MS knows about this since 2008 so I wouldn't be surprise if SQL Server is ready for DW 2.0 and if SQL Server is ready then Oracle also must be ready.
Here's the MSDN article about it.

yeah, they are, but oracle have warehouse builder tools, this is what I am looking for, a free platform for us to start and learn with.

yeah, I knew the product from that Link, it has the MS version of database RAC ! MS just do it on database tier instead of oracle RAC's cluster tier .

I can't find if the PDF is the copy of that book, should not be, as the PDF is not long enough to become a book.

Sorry, I didn't read the book so can't confirm about the PDF.
