This course condiders how to build, implement, tune and utilize data warehouses with Oracle technology. Logical data warehouse concepts are considered such as dimension tables, fact tables and star schemas. Implementing such logical concepts using the Oracle database is then presented including defining dimensions, hierarchies, measures and other objects. Physical implementation techniques are considered such as bitmap indexes, partitioned tables, materialized views, and others. Emphasis is placed on the parallel execution features of the database and how these can yield significant performance advantages.
This course was formerly called "Build Oracle 9i Data Warehouses".
