This unit discusses the concepts, architectures and methods of data warehousing and mining techniques, e.g., data warehouse architecture and schema, data cubes and OLAP (on-line analytical processing), ETL (Data Extraction, Transformation and Loading) process, data quality, association analysis and classification. It also focuses on the topics and techniques that are most promising for building and analyzing multidimensional data for efficiently organizing data warehouses and mining tools.
