In my previous article, I discussed goals – the first building block of real-time data warehousing. In this article, I am going to discuss the second building block and that’s the road map.

Once the goals are defined, the next step in the process is identifying the steps required to achieve the goals. Although these steps are essentially the road map, an effective roadmap does more than just list the steps required to achieve the goals. The road map reiterates the goals, lists the projects to achieve each of the goals, references the customers for each goal, lists the projects in order of implementation and lists project durations and deliverables. In short, you should be able to look at the road map and know at a glance the what, when and who for each goal.
