Data Warehouse - the term

Data Warehouse - the term
Does anyone know where the term "data warehouse" originated? What was the
paper or where and when was the conference where it was first introduced?

Thanks, Louise Reid

From Bill Inmon's publications/presentations, late 80's I believe. IBM was
using the term Information Warehouse, for both some products and literature,
but Bill's term has a broader base of exposure.

Richard

Re: Data Warehouse - the term

Further clarification:

Bill Inmon - the "father of data warehousing" coined the term data warehouse
in 1990. His definition is: A DATA WAREHOUSE is a subject-oriented,
integrated, time-variant, non-volatile collection of data in support of
management's decision making process.

Linda
Barry Devlin and P. Murphy published a seminal paper in the IBM Systems
Journal, 27, No 1, 1988, "An Architecture for a Business and Information
System", where he used the term Information Warehouse, as I recall.
Later writers, including Devlin himself, used the term Data Warehouse, as in
his own 1997 book on that subject (actually released in 1996).

Hi,

What ever happened to the term 'repository' or 'data repository'?
Was that just an IBM term and product? I believe this was used
prior to 'warehouse'.

Re: Data Warehouse - the term
(in response to Mike_Levine@TEKHELP.NET)
Michael
IBM's Repository Manager (MVS) was released in about 1990-91(?). It was a
true Repository, and part of IBM's unsuccessful AD/Cycle endeavour, IBM's
way to get users to SAA. It was not a Data Warehouse in conventionally used
sense (it was metadata).
Most of these terms are no longer in use; ditto the products, tho' some
remnants of SAA linger on.
I recall reading an interview with the "father of SAA" in the early/mid-90s
(Earl Wheeler??). Whn asked what happened to it, the reply was something
along the lines of "I guess it gave way to Open systems", or similar.
