Designing Data Warehouses with OO Conceptual Models
December 2001 (vol. 34 no. 12)
pp. 66-75

The authors propose an approach that provides a theoretical foundation for the use of object-oriented databases and object-relational databases in data warehouse, multidimensional database, and online analytical processing applications. This approach introduces a set of minimal constraints and extensions to the Unified Modeling Language for representing multidimensional modeling properties for these applications. Multidimensional modeling offers two benefits. First, the model closely parallels how data analyzers think and, therefore, helps users understand data. Second, multidimensional modeling helps predict what final users want to do, thereby facilitating performance improvements. The authors are using their approach to create an automatic implementation of a multidimensional model. They plan to integrate commercial online-analytical-processing tool facilities within their GOLD Model Case Tool as well, a task that involves data warehouse prototyping and sample data generation issues.
