Q:

I am a Ph.D student in engineering management at the George Washington University. My dissertation topic is related to adapting a method for estimating development costs of data warehouses. My short-term goal is to collect data on completed data warehouse projects. I need help on finding completed data warehouse projects. Can you give me hints?

A:

Sid Adelman’s Answer: There are a number of white papers on www.teradata.com that provide information on data warehouse costs.

Chuck Kelley’s Answer: Most agencies in the federal government have completed data warehouse projects. The ones that come quickly to my mind are DOE, GSA, Census, Patent and Trademark and HHS. I would be really surprised if the military or the DHS haven’t completed one. Good luck.

Clay Rehm’s Answer: I would contact many large companies within the United States since many or most of them have gone through the process of creating a data warehouse. Another idea is to network at data warehouse conferences.
