Q:

Is there a reference I can go to which will layout a generic methodology for developing a configuration methodology through the entire life cycle of data warehousing?

A:

Larissa Moss’ Answer: I recommend the book Business Intelligence Decision Support Roadmap: The Complete Lifecycle by Shaku Atre and Larissa Moss. The book is scheduled to be published by Addison Wesley by year end 2002.

Joe Oates’ Answer: All methodologies that I know of are proprietary to a company. So your best bet is to study one of the available books that include information on a data warehouse methodology at a sufficiently low level of detail. My recommendation is The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit by Ralph Kimball. It is the best that I am aware of. Alternatively, you may want to surf the Web for a government (public domain) methodology.
