Publisher: IBM Redbooks 1998
Number of pages: 216
This redbook gives detail coverage to the topic of data modeling techniques for data warehousing, within the context of the overall data warehouse development process. The process of data warehouse modeling, including the steps required before and after the actual modeling step, is discussed. Detailed coverage of modeling techniques is presented in an evolutionary way through a gradual, but well-managed, expansion of the content of the actual data model. Coverage is also given to other important aspects of data warehousing that affect, or are affected by, the modeling process. These include architecting the warehouse and populating the data warehouse. Guidelines for selecting a data modeling tool that is appropriate for data warehousing are presented.

This paper is an introduction to natural language interfaces to databases (NLIDBs). Some advantages and disadvantages of NLIDBs are then discussed, comparing NLIDBs to formal query languages, form-based interfaces, and graphical interfaces.

Data mining is about building models from data. We build models to gain insights into the world and how the world works. A data miner, in building models, deploys many different data analysis and model building techniques.
