      Designing data warehouse (DW) systems in highly dynamic enterprise environments is not an easy task. At each moment, the multidimensional (MD) schema needs to satisfy the set of information requirements posed by the business ...
    • BabbleFlow : a translator for analytic data flow programs 

      Jovanovic, Petar; Simitsis, Alkis; Wilkinson, Kevin (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014)
      Conference lecture
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      A complex analytic data flow may perform multiple, inter-dependent tasks where each task uses a different processing engine. Such a multi-engine flow, termed a hybrid flow, may comprise subflows written in more than one ...
    • GEM: requirement-driven generation of ETL and multidimensional conceptual designs 

      Romero Moral, Óscar; Simitsis, Alkis; Abelló Gamazo, Alberto (2010-10-21)
      External research report
      Open Access
      At the early stages of a data warehouse design project, the main objective is to collect the business requirements and needs, and translate them into an appropriate conceptual, multidimensional design. Typically, this ...
    • Incremental consolidation of data-intensive multi-flows 

      Jovanovic, Petar; Romero Moral, Óscar; Simitsis, Alkis; Abelló Gamazo, Alberto (2016-05-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Business intelligence (BI) systems depend on efficient integration of disparate and often heterogeneous data. The integration of data is governed by data-intensive flows and is driven by a set of information requirements. ...
