Being within the Inmon camp, I savor the authors' assurance of the ideas of the Operational information shop, and Normalized facts shop. This ebook could be the 1st booklet you learn in development a knowledge warehouse. even if the explicit sql code examples express SQL Server code, all options may be utilized to Oracle, and so on. just a couple court cases. there's a loss of insurance for modeling localization, i.e. modeling for neighborhood language requisites of the clients. the writer also needs to point out that facts Modeling instruments, akin to ErWin, PowerDesigner (best IMO), or ER/Studio can fairly increase metadata modeling, and documentation, even if he covers metadata rather well. That apart, I nonetheless supply this publication a five big name ranking, in lieu of all of the concept books in the market, which lack genuine global software examples.
