Data warehouse concepts

This one-day course offers a conceptual overview of the data warehouse.

All the characteristics and possibilities of data warehousing are treated: definitions, myth and reality, key concepts, implementation and exploitation strategies.

What does datamining mean and what are the possibilities now? Several types of products can be of use (cleaning, loading, extraction, ...). An architecture is essential, so some time will be spent on that.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
