The concept of data warehouse first appeared in Inmon (1993) to describe a “subject oriented, integrated, non-volatile, and time variant collection of data in support of management’s decisions” (31). It is a concept related to the OLAP (online analytical processing) technology, first introduced by Codd et al. (1993) to characterize the requirements of aggregation, consolidation, view production, formulae application, and data synthesis in many dimensions. A data warehouse is a repository of information that mainly comes from online transactional processing (OLTP) systems that provide data for analytical processing and decision support.
