The official guide on how to develop interoperable data warehouseand business intelligence applications from the authors of the CWMspecification
This authoritative guide will show you how to develop interoperabledata warehouse and business intelligence applications using theCommon Warehouse Metamodel (CWM) specification. It provides youwith clear explanations of how to implement CWM solutions for metadata interchange within your software products and use CWM-enabledtools in the construction of a corporate data warehouse,information factory, or supply chain. You'll find detaileddescriptions of four models of data warehousing that greatlybenefit from a standards-based approach to meta dataintegration.
The authors walk you through numerous in-depth code examples thatyou can follow in building your own CWM-enabled applications.
This book offers a logical and straightforward approach todeveloping CWM solutions. Covering the full development lifecycle,it will help you learn how to:
Use CWM to model interchangeable meta data across datawarehouses
Apply design patterns to CWM meta data integration
Understand the basics of constructing a CWM toolkit
Build meta data repositories and advanced meta data servicesbased on CWM
Use "best practice" techniques in modeling interchangeable metadata
Deploy an enterprise-wide meta data interchange solution
The companion Web site contains complete CWM solution models, adownloadable CWM repository solution, an active CWM meta datapattern catalog, updates on the technology, and links to vendorsites.
