Research Problems in Data Warehousing

Widom, J. (1995) Research Problems in Data Warehousing. In: Fourth International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 1995), November 29-December 2, 1995, Baltimore, Maryland.




The topic of data warehousing encompasses architectures, algorithms, and tools for bringing together selected data from multiple databases or other information sources into a single repository, called a data warehouse, suitable for direct querying or analysis. In recent years data warehousing has become a prominent buzzword in the database industry, but attention from the database research community has been limited. In this paper we motivate the concept of a data warehouse, we outline a general data warehousing architecture, and we propose a number of technical issues arising from the architecture that we believe are suitable topics for exploratory research.
