The RedBrick Data Warehousing Bible is the comprehensive tutorial and reference to Informix RedBrick Data Warehouses. The book covers all the features of RedBrick in the process of building a data warehouse through its complete lifecycle, beginning with planning the project, designing the database, building and loading the database, deploying the database to business users and maintaining the data warehouse in the future. Each of the topics is presented in a straightforward fashion by discussing in detail the objective, concepts, and implementation techniques and briefly touching on the more advanced components. One ongoing case study used throughout the book allows the reader to build upon it with each major area to create a sample data warehouse. Sample forms and documents as well as completed exercises are provided on the CD-ROM.
