The new IBM® Informix® Warehouse Feature provides an integrated and simplified software platform to design and deploy a warehouse repository on your existing IBM Informix Dynamic Server (IDS) infrastructure. This tutorial, the beginning of a series, gives you a first look at the Informix Warehouse Feature and its components. It will first introduce you to the context behind the new tools available and the value they add in a data warehouse scenario based on Informix, and then, it will give you a hands-on and example-driven view of the Informix Warehouse Client component, the Design Studio, by going through the steps for creating a simplified data warehouse and data extract-load-transform (ELT) project, identifying the source and the target databases involved, and designing the database physical model you have planned for your target Informix warehouse.
