Abstract

Data warehouse is an intelligent store of data that can aggregate vast amounts of information. A metadata is critical for implementing data warehouse. Therefore, integrating data warehouse with its metadata offers a new opportunity to create a more adaptive information system. This paper proposes a metadata-oriented data warehouse architecture that consists of seven components: legacy system, extracting software, operational data store, data warehouse, data mart, application, and metadata. A taxonomy for dataflow and metaflow is proposed for better understanding of the architecture. In addition, a metadata schema is built within the framework of the seven components. The architecture with its metadata component is applied to a real-life data warehouse for a large medical center in order to illustrate its practical usefulness.
