Therefore efficient and effective information management is absolutely crucial in deducing actionable intelligence. The need to analyze growing volumes of data archived and stored in multiple formats and disparate platforms has traditionally been the driving force for the growth of the data warehousing software market.

The evolution is reflective of the growing shift in preference from data capture and storage to information that can facilitate informed and quick decision making. The growing importance of data warehousing solutions is reflected in the rise in the number of Business Intelligence environments integrated with data warehouses (DW), and data marts (DM). Key business drivers influencing the adoption of data warehousing technologies include intensifying competition, increasingly shorter product lifecycles, need for optimization of available data resources and growing awareness of the hidden value trapped in corporate data.
