ETL Process Modeling Conceptual for Data Warehouses: A Systematic Mapping Study
Mazón, Jose Norberto
MetadataShow full item record
BACKGROUND: A data warehouse (DW) is an integrated collection of subject-oriented data in the support of decision making. Importantly, the integration of data sources is achieved through the use of ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load) processes. It is therefore extensively recognized that the appropriate design of the ETL processes are key factors in the success of DW projects. OBJECTIVE: We assess existing research proposals about ETL process modeling for data warehouse in order to identify their main characteristics, notation, and activities. We also study if these modeling approaches are supported by some kind of prototype or tool. METHOD: We have undertaken a systematic mapping study of the research literature about modeling ETL processes. A mapping study provides a systematic and objective procedure for identifying the nature and extent of the available research by means of research questions. RESULTS: The study is based on a comprehensive set of papers obtained after using a multi-stage selection criteria and are published in international workshops, conferences and journals between 2000 and 2009. CONCLUSIONS: This systematic mapping study states that there is a clear classification of ETL process modeling approaches, but that they are not enough covered by researchers. Therefore, more effort is required to bridge the research gap in modeling ETL processes.

Muñoz, Lilia; Mazón, Jose Norberto; Trujillo, Juan (08/23/2010)Abstract: In a Data Warehouse (DW), ETL processes (Extraction, Transformation, Load) are responsible for extracting, transforming and loading data from the data sources into the DW. A good design of these processes in the ...
Décomposition d’Images Fondée sur l’Analyse de la Régularité Locale: Application au Codage Hybride d’Image Merchán, Fernando; Turcu, Flavius; Najim, Mohamed (2016-07-01)La représentation hybride d'image utilise conjointement la décomposition en ondelettes pour l'information structurée et la modélisation paramétrique pour les textures.

A family of experiments to validate measures for UML activity diagrams of ETL processes in data warehouses Muñoz, Lilia; Mazón, Jose Norberto; Trujillo, Juan (11/01/2010)In data warehousing, Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) processes are in charge of extracting the data from the data sources that will be contained in the data warehouse. Their design and maintenance is thus a cornerstone ...
