Maintaining a Data Warehouse
Data warehouses collect and organize historical business data so it can be analyzed to assist management in making business decisions. To achieve this purpose, the data warehouse is created and initially loaded with the existing historical business data. It is then periodically updated with new data from operational data systems. Much of the effort in data warehouse maintenance is involved with updating the data in the data warehouse, adjusting data presentation applications to incorporate new data, and updating data marts.
