4.0 von 5 Sternen Everything you ever wanted to know about DW ...., 30. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
but were afraid to ask. This is the definitive book on the DW lifecycle. After having worked on two not-so-perfect data warehousing projects, I found myself on more than one occasion seeing in print many of the ideas that I have either arrived at by trial and error or had a hunch were the right way to go. I would have given this book five stars, except for one thing: you really need to have read Kimball's first book, The Data Warehouse Toolkit, to get the proper foundation for reading the DW Lifecylcle Toolkit. I bought the DW Lifecycle Toolkit first thinking that I could jump right ahead. Not so. Much to my chagrin, I ended up buying the DW Toolkit and reading it first. These books really should be offered with the option to be purchased together. That way, the reader will know up front that both books are a must read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I wish Ralph Kimball had written this book earlier ..., 6. Mai 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
His first book, The Data Warehouse Toolkit, reads like an abstract to this one. I am close to the end of my data warehouse project and I have figured out most of the secrets myself, but I find The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit of even greater value now that I actually understand it. It is concise, maybe a little too complete - it even covers interviewing techniques - and summarizes everything I have read during the last couple of month in various database journals about data warehousing. Here is everything you need to know about managing the development project, designing, implementing and running a data warehouse.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A concise depiction of data warehousing methodology., 14. November 1998

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
This book is the second in a series from the author and more concisely describes not only data warehouse methods, but also the pitfalls. Most people unfamiliar with data warehousing methods think it is simply "cloning" data. As the president of a company who implements data warehouses, we concur with Mr. Kimball and the fact that data warehousing is a "process" and the users of the data warehouse are the single most important criteria to building it. Mr. Kimball takes you through the difficult task of determining your "readiness" for a data warehouse and walks you through the entire process. This book is not for novices, but rather for the experienced individual(s) interested in exploring methods for implementing a solution that historically has at least a 50% chance of failure before it even begins. This book is an architects blueprint, crystalizing the reasons for such a high failure rate and how to avoid the common pitfalls. It won't build the data warehouse for you, but it should be mandatory reading for anybody involved in a data warehouse project.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book makes building a Data Warehouse Possible!, 19. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
We were at a lose on how to proceed with putting together an historical database that would track 10,000 discrete survey items from over 800 surveys per year, including survey indications, and official estimates. The real problem was doing it such a way as to make it easy to use, understandable, and accessible to all of our data analysts. We read Inmon's book and decided it would be too complicated and slow if we used his approach. Besides, we wanted true ad-hoc capabilities, and did not want to be hampered by a system that had too little data, or was being controled by someone trying to save nickles on DASD by spending dollars of our time. Kimball's book gave us what we were looking for: a way to build a data warehouse incrementally, using and tracking the lowest level of granularity in our data, and offering simplicity and service without an army of IT consultants. His engineering approach to dimensional modeling, particularly his notion of conforming dimensions puts the traditionalists, like Inmon, out to pasture.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good introduction to data-warehouse modeling, 7. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
you will get a very good introduction to data-warehouse modeling, you will need some basic SQL-knowledge and a little bit patience during reading (the book could be a little bit shorter)

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is clearly the BEST Data Warehouse book I've read!!, 18. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
Our organization has implemented a very successful Data Warehouse, due largely to following the design and deployment principles from Dr. Kimball's two textbooks. The key to a successful Data Warehouse is providing all business users an easy to use and high performance queryable system. The dimensional design is, without a doubt, the defacto standard for Queryable Data Warehouses, and the author does a superb job motivating its use and explaining how to develop your integrated, dimensional data warehouse. In addition, the author gives valuable advice on many, many other aspects of the process, such as assessing your readiness for proceeding with a warehouse effort. This book is a "must read" for anyone involved in a Data Warehouse project. You will have an excellent chance of succeeding with even a most complicated Data Warehouse System if you follow the wisdom in this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Number-one in Data Warehousing Literature, 28. Januar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
Ralph and his colleagues wrote a wonderful book about Data Warehousing. Ralph's objective is to make user happy. He want's to build intuitive and user-friendly Data Warehouses with a good performance and in this book he tells us how to succeed. He guides you through the Data Warehouse process form initialize interviews to design staging area and dimension models and lots more. I found this book to be the perfect answer to bringing myself up to speed. Not too technical -- but enough information to answer all the important questions which can occur in a Data Warehouse project Easy reading as well for people who native language is not english. Just read it and lets make users happy.
By the why: I would like to recommend this book to NCR's Rob Armstrong.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent discussion of data warehousing from head to toe, 5. März 1999

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
This book is invaluable for anyone involved in a data warehouse or data mart project. Kimball's discussion of the data warehouse bus is particularly useful now that data marts are exploding all over the enterprise.
Definitely add this book to your library, but beware that you will probably want additional references dealing with SMP, MPP, and NUMA platforms in more detail. In addition, check out "Data Mining Solutions: Methods and Tools for Solving Real-World Problems" for a strong introduction to Data Mining and Visualization.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A much used reference on our projects!, 14. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit: Tools and Techniques for Designing, Developing, and Deploying Data Warehouses: Tools and Techniques for ... and Deploying Data Marts and Data Warehouses (Taschenbuch)
My project team and I have used this book extensively in developing our project plans, performing analysis, design and in tool selection. It is an excellent reference and the CD with all of the checklists and materials is VERY helpful. Why re-create the wheel when it is on a CD! Having read the book, taken classes taught by the authors and applying the concepts to our projects it is easy to say that this is simply the best reference book for building and deploying data warehouses and data marts that is currently available.
