Data Warehouses (DWs) use an omnipresent time dimension for keeping track of changes in measure values. However, this dimension cannot be used to model changes in other dimensions. On the other hand, Temporal Databases (TDBs) have been successfully used for modelling time-varying information. Bringing together these two research areas, leading to Temporal Data Warehouses (TDWs), provides the necessary solutions for managing time-varying data in dimensions. In this paper, we introduce temporal… CONTINUE READING
