Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence

DW Books

Disappointed with the Google search result of “data warehousing books”, I try to put all data warehousing books that I know into this page. It is totally understandable why Google’s search result don’t include ETL or Dimensional Modeling, for example. Same thing with Amazon, see Note 1 below. Even data warehouse books as important as Inmon’s DW 2.0 was missed because the title doesn’t contain the word “Warehouse”.

For data modelling my all time favorite is the Kimball’s toolkit (#1 in the list). Devlin’s, Inmon’s and Imhoff’s classics (#3, #4 and #5 in the list) have broaden my horizon on the basic principles of DW design. For ODS design it’s #17 and the newest model is in #6. If you are building a DW on SQL Server platform, Mundy’s Toolkit (#2) is a treasure. On Oracle, it’s Hobbs (#54) and on Teradata it’s Coffing’s series (#58 to #63). #7 to #11 explain Kimball’s theory in more detail. Some of them are dimensional modelling (Adamson’s #8 is excellent), some are about ETL (Kimball’s #7 is a jewel). For methodology/project management #11 is the classic, #27 is a proven treasure and #83 for the iterative approach.

Notes:

  1. You may think that “data warehouse” search in Amazon would also include “data warehousing”. That was what I was thinking. But sadly no. I don’t hope Amazon search is smart enough to interpret that the term “ETL” or “Dimensional Model” has a lot to do with data warehousing either, hence my motive to create this list. Same for the term “ODS” and “data mart”.
  2. Data warehouse book as important as Inmon’s DW 2.0 was missed because the title doesn’t contain “Warehous*”. Sad. And Data Warehousing 101: Concepts and Implementation by Arshad Khan was missed when we search “Data Warehouse” in Amazon.
  3. I don’t limit myself on SQL Server. As you can see I also include Oracle ones. We can learn a lot about data warehousing from other platform, particularly the ETL. In fact I learnt a lot from a book called “Oracle 8i Data Warehousing” (Corey et al, not Hobbs & Hilson). Informix, DB2, MySQL, AS/400, SAS, are all in there now.
  4. I don’t include data modelling book in the list if it’s a general one. I only include it if it’s dimensional model.
  5. I don’t include “bundle”, e.g. several books packaged and sold as one. An example of a bundle is Kimball’s Toolkit bundle. The reason is because I have included the components individually.
  6. I don’t include data mining book if it’s only data mining. But if contains data warehousing as well then I include it. See Alex Berson’s for example. Ditto for MDM, BI, OLAP, DQ and Text Analytics. I do include Decision Support though (well of course)
  7. Can you believe it’s 123 books in data warehousing! That’s a lot of books for 1 area of study/work. And that exclude the things I mentioned above.
  8. If there are many editions of the book (like Inmon classic) I only include the latest one. First edition is an absolute treasure sometimes, like Kimball’s 1996 but there you go. When it’s a rewrite using different version of the software, I include them. For example: Oracle 8i, 9i and 10g Data Warehousing.
  9. I do include conference proceedings and lecture notes, despite that some people say they are not ‘real books’. I don’t care the physical form of it (thin, thick, non paper, etc), as long as the content is warehousing.
  10. Apologies there are many DW books in German which I don’t include here. Primarily because this is an English blog and I can’t write in German. Perhaps somebody else could make a list of these German DW books (there are really a lot of them, check in Amazon).
  11. I know there is a Data Warehousing book in MySQL. I know it exists because I know the author, who is also from Indonesia like me but he lives in Canada now. Djoni Darmawikarta. So I’ll find it and put it here too.
  12. I own Barry Devlin’s warehousing book. Very old, the binder is almost off, but the content is illuminating. Primarily because it was written free from Inmon & Kimball influence, hence it defined its owned principles of design. I’ll add it here.
  13. Intelligent Solution composed a comprehensive list of data warehousing articles, from 1993 to 2006.

My Book

I was sometimes asked by people who wanted to learn data warehousing to recommend a book for them. Some of them are database administrators/data architects (on various platforms) and some are developers (application developers and database developers). They know how to write SQL. They know how to create tables. They know how to query data. They are looking for a basic data warehousing book, which is practical and aimed for beginners. A book that can be used by new starters to build their first data warehouse, and the BI on top of it. A book that contains all the essential topics such as methodology, architecture, data modelling, ETL, data quality, reports, cubes and BI. A book that contains examples and illustrations from real projects which are easy to understand. For this reason I wrote a data warehousing book: Building a Data Warehouse: with Examples on SQL Server (#12).

It has 17 chapters:

  • Chapter 1 is about what a data warehouse is
  • Chapter 2 is about data warehouse architecture
  • Chapter 3 is about methodology / project management
  • Chapter 4 is about gathering requirements
  • Chapter 5 is about designing the data model, both dimensional and normalised
  • Chapter 6 is about the system architecture/servers and configuring the databases
  • Chapter 7 is about ETL (extracting data from source systems)
  • Chapter 8 is also about ETL (loading data into the warehouse)
  • Chapter 9 is about data quality
  • Chapter 10 is about metadata
  • Chapter 11 is about reports
  • Chapter 12 is about OLAP cubes
  • Chapter 13 is about BI (Business Intelligence)
  • Chapter 14 is about using a data warehouse for CRM
  • Chapter 15 is about unstructured data and data warehousing search
  • Chapter 16 is about testing
  • Chapter 17 is about operation and administration

It contains all the essential topics in data warehousing. In order for this book to be able to be used to build the reader’s first data warehouse, and the BI on top of it, I need to give a case study. A case study that contain examples which span across all those chapters. From designing the architecture, to building the cubes and reports. For this purpose I had to choose a platform. I chose SQL Server as the platform. Not only it has an excellent database engine, it also comes with the ETL, reports, OLAP cubes and data mining tool built-in. SQL Server 2005/2008 is a complete end-to-end data warehousing solution. So in chapter 6 I use SQL Server database server to create the databases. In chapter 7 & 8 I use SSIS for data extraction and data loading (ETL). In chapter 10 I used SQL Server database for metadata. In chapter 11 I used SSRS for reports. In chapter 12 I used SSAS for OLAP cubes. And in chapter 13 I used SSAS for data mining. I hope this book will serve its purpose in providing a basic data warehousing book, which is practical and aimed for beginners.

  1. Vincent,
    Thanks a lot
    Excellent list and all in one place… In additional in Amazon exists several good books about data quality which may be very useful. In particular, Kimball’s book has a link to “Data Quality: The Accuracy Dimension”

  2. Hello Vincent,
    First congratulation for this blog. One of the best work on Internet blogs (i talk about those blogs where you see very quicly that the author really knows what he is talking about and is near wizard stage… I like it!
    For this page, best pragmatic list i saw at the moment!
    I register you in my feeds!

  3. Hi Vincent,

    I just love your blog and your book that I bought more than 3 years ago. I have recommended your book to many BI consultants I came across and they all have found it very valuable. I have been active in Kimball Forum for just over a year, and only recently found a few of your old posts over there. What impresses me a lot is that you have contributed so much to the BI community while being so humble about yourself. Keep up good work!

  6. nice list of books. bidwbooks.com also has some good recommendation on the BI Books

    Comment by Business Intelligence books — 1 May 2013 @ 12:41 pm | Reply

  7. Oh one thing so far, that i guess i can get over that I didn’t like about your book is that you use (looks like) inheritance notation for your ERDs rather an Crows feet. Its not as intuitive for me and it means I have to try to translate the diagram. I also wonder if I’m understanding it correctly. And FYI some one seems to have submitted Errata for your book on Apress.com but no one has responded. It wasn’t me and I’ve not made it that far yet, but hopefully I’ll figure it out by the time i reach that point. Thanks!
