Kimball multidimensional design

Information stored in facts and dimension is a very old concept (since the1960’s) that has been growing in complexity and ability to deliver solutions. The last standardised application of this concept is the Kimball methodology, the most commonly accepted Data Warehouse design technique around the world.

It is a comprehensive solution of how to store, clean and offer information to be used by a Business Intelligence tools (reporting, cubes, FPM, etc). It is so powerful that it can work on its own using any simple reporting tool that you company may already have (such as Crystal Report or even Microsoft Excel).

At the same time it is very flexible. It is easy to modify, expand and improve. It can grow with your company without you needing to redo everything. You can prepare it to record changes in the structure in order to analyse the past from the present. It also includes methods to speed up only certain areas of your Data Warehouse if some information is not being provided fast enough for your reporting requirements.

It does not require any technology in particular and can be implemented in nearly any database system.


Agile software development refers to a group of software development methodologies based on iterative development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organising cross-functional teams.

The term was coined in the year 2001 when the Agile Manifesto was formulated. Agile methods generally promote a disciplined project management process that encourages frequent inspection and adaptation, a leadership philosophy that encourages teamwork, self-organisation and accountability, a set of engineering best practices intended to allow for rapid delivery of high-quality software, and a business approach that aligns development with customer needs and company goals.

Conceptual foundations of this framework are found in modern approaches to operations management and analysis, such as lean manufacturing, soft systems methodology, speech act theory (network of conversations approach), and Six Sigma.
