Case studies of data warehousing failures

Four studies of data warehousing failures are presented. They were written based on interviews with people who were associated with the projects. The extent of the failure varies with the organization, but in all cases, the project was at least a disappointment.

Read the cases and prepare a report that provides a substantive discussion on each of the following:

1.  What’s the scope of what can be considered a data warehousing failure?

2.  What do you find most interesting in the failure stories?

3.  Do they provide any insights about how a failure might be avoided?

Your discussion should be at least 2 pages
