In this session we discuss the use of the Star Schema in data warehousing and compare it to relational modeling.  Typically used for OLAP cubes, these are also efficient for tabular modeling or DMR reporting.  We discuss dimensional analysis starting with business questions.  After that we discuss dimensional design, including the use of a Bus Matrix.  If time allows, we will review Slow Changing Dimensions and Conforming Dimensions.
