 Northwind Data Mining and Statistical Analysis – Data Warehouse Part 1 

The purpose of this milestone assignment is to complete the tasks described below in preparation for your final project delivery.

  1. Data Warehouse:

    • Create a data warehouse database, including the fact and dimension tables (star schema).
    • Create the schema for each table.
    • Populate the tables using either ETL (Pentaho) or SQL (PostgreSQL).
  2. Preprocessing for SAS:

    • Extract data from the data warehouse, creating a file for input into SAS. The format of the file is your choice. Ensure SAS University Edition accepts your selected format.

You should use the plan formulated in Milestone 1 of Module 3 for the detailed steps you intend to follow.

For this milestone assignment, you are expected to submit:

  • Screenshots of the populated data warehouse
  • Star schema design, either a drawing or screenshot
  • Row counts for the fact and dimension tables
  • Brief description of your key learnings from completing this assignment

Your assignment must meet the following requirements:

  • Be 2-4 pages in length, not including the cover and references pages.
  • Follow the CSU-Global Guide to Writing & APA

     (Links to an external site.)

    . Your paper should include an introduction, a body with at least two fully developed paragraphs, and a conclusion.

  • Be clearly and well written using excellent grammar and style techniques. Be concise and logical. You are being graded, in part, on the quality of your writing. If you need assistance with your writing style, you can find many writing resources in the CSU-Global Writing Center

I already downloaded another paper from this site, please do not copy-paste from that assignment

Aside from the Final paper, I need a separate instructions sheet with step by step guide to the functions so I can run the codes in my SAS program so I can get screenshots.
