History of Data Warehouse
Posted by Dylan Wan on January 6, 2007
In the early stages only two vendors within the IT industry foresee what was happening later become data warehouse. One was Teradata Corporation, which originated the database machine that could handle a terabye of data. It was the first industry -hardened massively parallel computer. Teradata became at least for five years in succession one of the fast growing company at that time.
The second vendor was IBM which published “Information Warehouse” framework as early as 1987.
Data Warehousing then became the key trend in corporate computing in the 1990s. Data warehousing is not really a technology trend per se. It was primarily driven by the business envirobment.
