What is a data warehouse, and why do you need one?

A data warehouse (DWH) is a centralized repository of data integrated from one or more data sources. The main two approaches used to integrate data into the data warehouse are Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) and Extract, Load, Transform (ELT). The data warehouse is a core component of business intelligence, which enables structured data storing, reporting and analysis.

The DWH implementation and management can be assigned to either a company’s in-house IT team or a professional consultancy. There is also a possibility to eliminate the burden of DWH design, implementation, maintenance and support by opting for DWaaS.
