Ralph Kimball Ø The Data Warehouse Toolkit The Complete Guide to Dimensional Modeling BOOK

The latest edition of the single most authoritative guide on dimensional modeling for data warehousing Dimensional modeling has become the most widely accepted approach for data warehouse design Here is a complete library of dimensional modeling techniues the most comprehensive collection ever written Greatly expanded to cover both basic and advanced techniues for optimizing data warehouse design this second edition to Ralph Kimball's classic guide is than sixty percent updatedThe authors begin with fundamental design recommendations and gradually progre The best thing about this book is that it is the book on dimensional data modeling and it is written by the people who invented the approach in the first placeThe worst thing about this book is the organisation In the first two editions of The Data Warehouse Toolkit Kimball et all decided to organise the book according to use case which meant that each chapter examined one particular business application eg CRM Inventory eCommerce Insurance and so on This was absolutely terrible because it spread the core principles out over many many chapters and organised it in such a way that you couldn't read a random chapter without first familiarising yourself with the ideas presented in all the chapters preceding itSo in the years since the 2nd edition came out numerous students of the Kimball method published their own versions of the book presenting the core ideas in a compressed principle by principle form The 3rd edition of The Data Warehouse Toolkit solved this problem by adding a new chapter Chapter 2 that laid out all the ideas in one place and referenced where they were introduced across all the other chapters If you want to read this book read the 3rd edition and read Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 first before using Chapter 2 to jump around to each idea The authors do themselves a disservice by organising the book this way On top of that many of their implementation notes have not aged well The ideas around the star schema are worth reading But many other implementation details that assume RDBMS performance problems are no longer as relevant I hope the Kimball group updates this classic to reflect the realities and capabilities of the modern cloud based MPP columnar data warehouse in the near future
