It seems that there is very little academic research done in the data warehouse area in spite of the need for this by the business community. What areas in data warehousing can benefit from academic research? By academic research, I mean research conducted by academic professors on data warehouse issues in their universities. I understand that a lot of industry experts write on the topic but I could not find academic research on it. For example, if I want to conduct academic research on data warehouse design methods or models towards a Ph.D. degree in MIS, I want to find if there is other research in this area or any other areas needed by the business.

Typically, these people have both solid technical and business skills.
