What information resources do your users have?

Today's data warehouse environments offer users a variety of information sources. Architectures can contain data staging areas, operational data stores, enterprise data warehouses, data marts and other data store types. Each of these stores offers different opportunities for information investigation and delivery depending on the point in time and state of the data. In many cases, all information delivery has been redeployed to the data warehouse environment to offload the transactional systems, allowing these systems to focus on business processing, not delivery. This redeployment has become more practical as data transformation processing transitioned from a slow monthly or overnight activity to intraday or near real time. This provides users with the opportunity to analyze cleansed and integrated data for making both tactical and strategic business decisions.
