The Unified Star Schema: An Agile and Resilient Approach to Data Warehouse and Analytics Design, by Bill Inmon and Francesco Puppini
Bill Inmon, the “father of data warehouse”, has written 60 books published in nine languages. Bill’s latest adventure is the building of technology known as textual disambiguation – technology that reads raw text in a narrative format and allows the text to be placed in a conventional database so that it can be analyzed by standard analytical technology, thereby creating unique business value for Big Data/unstructured data.
Francesco Puppini is an Italian freelance consultant in business intelligence and data warehousing, and he is the inventor of the Unified Star Schema. He has worked on over 30 different projects across ten European countries, for clients from several industries.
