"Data Warehouse software provides access to structured
and unstructured information and operational and transactional data
in real time. It provides users with all the functionality needed
to obtain optimum return from a firm's most important investment --
information. Consequently, this type of software plays a key part
in ensuring that a business remains successful.
"Data warehouse software provides much more than just data
storage. After all, if you just want to store information
relational databases would fit the bill. Where data warehouse
software adds a new dimension is that it offers the means to
retrieve and analyze data, to extract, transform and load data, and
to manage the data dictionary. Software included in this article
also help users to administer and monitor data quality, to ensure
that it is relevant to the business situation."
