The Data Warehouse is the foundation for Business Intelligence
Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence terms together refer to the delivering of the entire end to end solution from the source extracts to the queries and applications that the business users interact with.
The emergence of Data warehouse stems from the necessity to separate data for querying and analysis from the data for transaction processing as the first need to be structured around business terms and model that make sense to the end user.
As the business requirements for building the Data Warehouse are usually unknown at the start the development does not lend itself to the classical waterfall development methodology
