Data Warehouse Design Techniques – Slowly Changing Dimensions

In my last blog post, I demonstrated the importance of conformed dimensions to the flexibility and scalability of the warehouse. This week we will discuss the importance of capturing the dimensional change in slowly changing dimensions. Slowly Changing Dimensions Slowly Changing Dimensions (SCD) are the most commonly used advanced dimensional technique used in dimensional data warehouses. Slowly changing dimensions are used when you wish to capture the changing data within the dimension over time. There are three methodologies for slowly changing dimensions.   Type 1 – For this type of slowly changing dimension you simply overwrite the existing data values with new data values. This makes the updating of the dimension easy and limits the growth of the dimension table to only new records. The drawback of this is you lose the historical value of the data because the dimension will always contain the current values for each attribute. For instance, you have a store dimension which has an attribute for a geographic region. If there is a redesign in the regional boundaries some stores may move […]
