The paper presents the data warehousing archi- tecture and practices used at a major U. S. retailing company. Many considerations were assessed when deciding which data warehousing architecture to adopt. The paper discusses the two pre-dominant styles in Data Warehousing, namely the "Bill Inmon Style" or the top-down approach and the "Ralph Kimball Style"or the bottom-up approach. The com- pany chose the Inmon style due to a unique combina- tion of circumstances in their business and technical environments, which are being discussed in detail. Much of the information presented in this paper is based upon the direct experiences of the lead data architect assigned to the projects under which this U. S. retailing company's customer data warehouse evolved.
