The data warehouse is a separate, central database in which company-specific data from various operational data systems are combined, can be processed and enable a global analysis of a company's data stocks. The data warehouse serves to improve the supply of information in the company and, as an analytical system, forms the basis for online analytical processing (OLAP), or problem analysis. The data warehouse is also often the starting point for data mining.
