A gem of a book


A truly wonderful book: beautifully written, engaging, stimulating, and extremely original. I have read and reread it many, many times, and each time I have had new insights and appreciations; it so exquisite in detail. The only (potential) flaw is that it is not for everyone, since the beauty of the book is not revealed superficially. A tour-de-force not easy to emulate, even in a generation, even to its own author.

A Must for Every BI/DW Professional


It is refreshing to read a book that presents in-depth techniques for developing a BI application from cradle to grave in a continuous evolutionary process. Various matrices and WBS samples in Part II of the book serve as a quick reference for iterative planning and delivering of decision-support systems.The authors have done a phenomenal job in integrating business, technical,and management aspects of a BI and decision-support system to present an exhaustive set of guidelines.
After working with numerous clients and having read Inmon's Building the Data Warehouse, Kimball's The Data Warehouse Lifecycle Toolkit as well as various BI white papers, I know that data ETL and data warehouses are a major part of any BI strategy. However, after reviewing the summary of over 20 BI related books, I found that the primary focus of many BI books is normally limited to data presentation and analytical layers only.This book is an exception .
I would recommend this book to expert as well as novice DW/BI professionals alike, who may be business users, data analysts, architects, project managers, statisticians,or executive stakeholders.
