Example text

Some may try to manage this data directly in the data warehouse; however, this is not recommended. This would be like trying to bulldoze a large mound of dirt with a Ferrari. The data warehouse is designed for strategic decision support and lacks the form and function to effectively store and access transaction-level data in real time. Additionally, if the data warehouse became the authoritative source of this raw detail data, it is likely that it would quickly become pressured to support operational activities for which it was designed to augment.

The orientation corresponds precisely to the entities that are defined in the high-level logical data model. But the corporate data model does not directly serve the needs of the departments that have data marts. The departmental data marts are patterned after the requirements that apply and are unique to a particular department. As such, their data models are shaped by their processing requirements. Finance will have its data model; accounting will have its data model; sales will have its data model; and so forth.

For these reasons and more, reference data is often not managed with the same discipline that other data in the CIF is managed, yet it still requires as careful attention as any other type of data. For at least three reasons, reference data plays a very important role in the world of the CIF: 1. Reference data can simplify I & T layer processing. If reference data in an application is the same as reference data in the data warehouse, then the task of I & T is made much simpler. However, if the I & T layer must completely discard one approach to reference data and create an entirely brand new reference system (which can be done in extreme cases), then the logic of I & T processing becomes very complex and cumbersome.
