Tiger by the Tail


The University of Missouri, Rolla is in its eleventh year of maintaining a local data warehouse in a relational database. That foundation put UMR in a position to make the transition from a traditional legacy structure to a distributive environment for presenting information to the campus community.

This paper presents the thoughts, arguments, and difficulties encountered during the development of this project.
