A data warehouse (or smaller-scale data mart) is a specially prepared repository of data created to support decision making. Data are extracted from source systems, cleaned/scrubbed, transformed, and placed in data stores (Gorla, 2003). A data warehouse has data suppliers who are responsible for delivering data to the ultimate end users of the warehouse, such as analysts, operational personnel, and managers. The data suppliers make data available to end users either through structured query language (SQL) queries or custom-built decision-support applications, including decision support systems (DSS) and executive information systems (EIS).
