Designing Data Warehouses
A Data Warehouse DW is a database that collects and stores data from multiple remote and heterogeneous information sources. When a query is posed, it is evaluated locally, without accessing the original information sources. In this paper we deal with the issue of designing a DW, in the context of the relational model, by selecting a set of views to materialize in the DW. First, we brie y present a theoretical framework for the DW design problem, which concerns the selection of a set of views that a t in the space allocated to the DW, b answer all the queries of interest, and c minimize the total query evaluation and view maintenance cost. We then formalize the DW design problem as a state space search problem by taking into account multiquery optimization over the maintenance queries i.e. queries that compute changes to the materialized views and the use of auxiliaryviews for reducingthe view maintenance cost. Finally, incremental algorithms and heuristics for pruning the search space...
