Running the Data Warehouse

Commerce Server 2002

You use the Commerce Server Data Warehouse to import, transform, and store Web site data. You import data into your Data Warehouse from Web log files, Commerce Server databases, and other data sources that you specify. After the data is imported, you can analyze it by running reports from Commerce Server Business Desk, or by viewing population segments.

The Data Warehouse database is added to Microsoft SQL Server when you unpack a site. You use Commerce Server Data Transformation Services (DTS) tasks to import and manage the data.

For important information about securing the Data Warehouse, changing connection strings, and assigning Business Desk users permissions to run reports, see Securing the Data Warehouse and Securing Reports.
