What is a Data Warehouse?

A data warehouse is a centralised repository of integrated data from various disparate sources usually cleaned and standardised for the purposes of business reporting and analysis. The data flows into a data warehouse from a variety of sources, such as transactional systems, relational databases, point-of-sale systems, and business applications, generally on a regular cadence.

Features

Key Features of Data Warehousing

A data warehouse can be designed to host structured data like database tables, excel spreadsheets as well as semi-structured data in the form of XML files and webpages. A data warehouse hosts large amounts of such information and provides users with easy and efficient access to a wealth of historical data, catering to data analytics and the reporting needs of a business.

Reliable data, especially when aggregated over time, helps users make smarter, more informed decisions about the way they run their organization. Here are the key features of a data warehouse:

  • Consolidated data serves as a single source of truth

  • Improved data quality, consistency, and accuracy

  • Provides historical data analysis capabilities

  • Supports dynamic and advanced data analytics & reporting

  • Decoupling analytics and transactional processes improve overall performance across systems
