Data Flow

The steps for building a data warehouse or repository are well understood. The data flows from one or more source databases into an intermediate staging area, and finally into the data warehouse or repository (see Figure 1). At each stage there are data quality tools available to massage and transform the data, thus enhancing the usability of the data once it resides in the data warehouse.
