Like most large enterprises, you rely on your ability to perform complicated queries with large volumes of data. This ability makes it possible for your organization to develop a clearer picture of the current business conditions. A data warehouse is nothing more than a system that assists managers with data storage and extraction whenever they need it. It’s essentially a collection of all the different databases located throughout your enterprise.
The best data warehousing systems will be able to mine and selectively extract relevant data and store it in an organized way that makes sense to humans in addition to machines.
