A data warehouse is exactly what it sounds like - a place where data gets stored. It is a centralized data management system where your data lives either before or after it’s cleaned and prepared for sending to business intelligence applications. Data Warehousing is the process of collecting structured data from single or multiple sources into a data warehouse to facilitate reporting, ad hoc queries & decision-making.
- Data Warehouse is the most important thing in your data stack - the goal of a data warehouse is to provide a unified view of your organization’s data and operations, allowing you to access and analyze it from a single source rather than dealing with multiple silos.
- A data warehouse stores data over extended periods, creating a trove of historical data that can be retrieved and analyzed for forecasting, identifying patterns and understanding the impact of past events on your business.
