Information is one of the most valuable assets of an organization, and when used properly can assist intelligent decision-making that can significantly improve the functioning of an organization. Data warehousing is a recent technology that allows information to be easily and efficiently accessed for decision-making activities. On-line analytical processing (OLAP) tools are well studied for complex data analysis. A data warehouse is a set of subject-oriented, integrated, time varying and non-volatile databases used to support the decision-making activities (Inmon, 1992).
