Oracle Tips 

by Burleson Consulting

The Data Warehouse Development Life Cycle

Online Analytical Processing and Oracle
Data Warehouses And Multidimensional Databases
* Pre-joining tables together--This is an obtuse way of saying that a de-normalized table is created from the normalized online database. A large pre-join of several tables is sometimes called a fact table in a STAR schema.

* Pre-summarization--This prepares the data for any drill-down requests that may come from the end user. Essentially, the different levels of aggregation are identified, and the aggregate tables are computed and populated when the data is loaded.

* Massive de-normalization--The side effect of very inexpensive disks has been the rethinking of the merits of third normal form (3NF). Today, redundancy is widely accepted, as seen by the popularity of replication tools, snapshot utilities, and non-3NF databases. If you can precreate every possible result table at load time, your end user will enjoy excellent response time when making queries. The STAR schema is an example of massive de-normalization.

* Controlled periodic batch updating--New detail data is rolled into the aggregate table on a periodic basis while the online system is down, with all summarization recalculated as the new data is introduced into the database. While data loading is important, it is only one component of the tools for loading a warehouse.
