Data Warehouse Requirements Analysis Framework: Business-Object Based Approach
A. Sarkar. International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications(IJACSA)(2012)
Detailed requirements analysis plays a key role towards the design of successful Data Warehouse (DW) system. The requirements analysis specifications are used as the prime input for the construction of conceptual level multidimensional data model. This paper has proposed a Business Object based requirements analysis framework for DW system which is supported with abstraction mechanism and reuse capability. It also facilitate the stepwise mapping of requirements descriptions into high level design components of graph semantic based conceptual level object oriented multidimensional data model. The proposed framework starts with the identification of the analytical requirements using business process driven approach and finally refine the requirements in further detail to map into the conceptual level DW design model using either Demand-driven of Mixed-driven approach for DW requirements analysis.
