My question is in the realm of operational reporting. My client (a state government) does not want the expenses of an ODS or a data warehouse, but they want to be able to copy the production database, index a few fields to make the reports run faster and run reports on it. What tools are there to make copying the database easy? Are there any tools which can just apply the changes on a day- to-day basis instead of having to copy the complete database?
