BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
This course teaches the design and development of data warehouses. The OLTP and OLAP needs of businesses are analyzed to rationalize the need of data warehouses and corresponding data models. Data warehouse architectures ranging from ROLAP to MOLAP are developed and evaluated. Data models conducive to such needs are studied. Tools to develop in-house data warehouses are identified and practiced along with off-the-shelf data warehouse solutions including cloud based services. Role of competing concepts such as data lakes and big data is evaluated in the context of data warehousing.
1. Please email email@example.com for departmental approval. Include your student number (A0#), course number (COMP__) and preferred CRN. 2. This is a CST BTech course. CST BTech courses are also open to non-bachelor program students. 3. CST Bachelor program students have up to seven (7) years to complete the Bachelor program starting from the date of their first Technical degree-level course or the date of acceptance to the Bachelor program, WHICHEVER COMES FIRST.
Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
Analyze OLTP and OLAP business needs and use traditional database systems vs data warehouses accordingly.
Design and implement ROLAP data models such as star and snow-flake to address OLAP business needs.
Design and implement MOLAP data models such as multidimensional cubes using off-the-shelf data warehousing solutions.
Design and implement ETL (extraction, transformation and loading) using tools such as stored procedures and triggers, database APIs and web services APIs to support data warehouse development needs.
Apply well-known data warehouse design and development process to implement data warehouses for real-world business intelligence needs.
Implement data warehouses utilizing enterprise as well as cloud based data warehouse solutions.
Design OLAP queries using SQL extensions and MDX.
Integrate off-the-shelf reporting and plotting tools with the data warehouse to evaluate its efficacy in supporting business intelligence.
Optimize scalability of data warehouse solutions.
Effective as of Fall 2019
