Can you explain what exactly Data Warehouse is?
As the name implies its warehouse for our data. It’s a central location where all our data will be stored.
How Data stored in Data Warehoused is different from the one we store in other places?
- Data warehouse contains data retrieved from multiple locations.
- Data is stored in Denormalized manner.
Denormalized database makes performance of select query better by removing/reducing the joins required. Thus it’s a good option for reporting.

SSIS let us collect data from multiple sources and dump into one central repository.
SSAS let us analyze the collected data and finally SSRS let us show the amazed data to end user in more attractive way. (In terms of graphics, carts etc.
What is ETL?
SSIS basically performs ETL that is Extraction (Collect data from other sources), Transformation(Convert collecteddata based to a different format based on requirement) and Load (load converted data to central location).
