A data mart is defined as an application-specific analytic repository of any size, normally with a specific, smaller group of users than a data warehouse. Data marts can be used to optimize the data warehouse by offloading part of the workload to the data mart, returning greater performance to the warehousing environment.

According to Gartner, Inc., CIOs need to familiarize themselves with nine key trends in data warehousing and how they will impact the cost-benefit balance of technology deployed to deliver business analytics value during 2011 and 2012.

Gartner analysts said the data warehouse is set to remain a key component of the IT infrastructure and believe that, as the demand for business intelligence (BI) and the wider category of business analytics increases, optimization, flexible designs and alternative strategies will become more important.

"The data warehouse remains one of the largest — if not the largest — information repository in the enterprise," said Mark Beyer, research vice president at Gartner. "Only by being aware of the key market trends and how emerging technology solutions will blend with proven practices can the CIO avoid budget waste through 'misdirection' by the data warehouse management and delivery team."

This slideshow highlights nine key trends Gartner has identified in the data warehousing market for 2011 and 2012.
