"Analyzing information and acting accordingly is a key strategic goal of every business. But vast quantities of data are of little use if they are not structured and kept in such a way as to be readily accessible and applicable. Only optimally organized information can drive maximum productivity.

"Blissful Data" is a reader-friendly book that reveals what it takes to achieve a state of perfect organization within the environment of a successful data warehouse. This timely book will help the reader:

* understand how data evolves into information that drives better decision making

* recognize the pitfalls, caused by people and politics, that lead to short-sighted solutions and long-term problems

* manage data warehousing costs, performance, and expectations effectively

* apply project management fundamentals to data warehouse endeavors

"Blissful Data" includes dozens of examples, as well as case studies illustrating successful, unsuccessful, and disastrous data warehouse strategies."
