What Is Warehouse Builder?

Oracle Warehouse Builder (OWB) is Oracle's comprehensive tool for ETL (extract, transform and load), fully integrated relational and dimensional modeling, data quality, data auditing, and full life cycle management of data and metadata. It supports data integration and metadata management activities including:

  • Extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) for data warehouses
  • Consolidating data from heterogeneous data sources
  • Migrating data from legacy systems
  • Data modeling of relational and dimensional structures
  • Designing and managing corporate metadata
  • Data cleansing for maximizing information quality
  • Data profiling and data quality auditing

You learn how to use Oracle Warehouse Builder to design, build, and manage your data warehouse, data mart, or business intelligence system. The paradigm throughout the product is that you import definitions, define target structures, validate the structures, generate the code to implement the structures, and deploy the structures to the target environment. After it is deployed, Warehouse Builder assists in the daily maintenance as well as monitoring of the deployed system. You learn how Warehouse Builder leverages your Oracle database investments and integrates with other Oracle tools.

This series of OBE tutorials walks you through a data profiling exercise, allowing you to correct data based on detected business rules. In addition, the tutorials show how you can match and merge duplicate data using Warehouse Builder. Other topics include ETL on complex data types, modeling of schemas in the Oracle database (includes partitioning, indexing, and compression). And finally, the tutorials show how to augment Warehouse Builder with Experts, allowing you to encapsulate business knowledge into Warehouse Builder.
