Data Warehousing

Micah Walter, Independent, USA

At Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, we’ve been collecting large amounts of data. This data has been typically in the form of Web analytics, ticketing, and CRM data, and more recently data generated by our interactive Pen! As a side project, we have attempted to build a new data analytics tool to allow our staff to look into all of our data sets at once and generate queries and reports in a more holistic and cohesive way by using a technique called “data warehousing.”
