"The enterprise data model for a data warehouse is like the city plan for designing a metropolis. It is not an effec­tive strategy to build out a complex system without a plan. Without a plan, chaos will ensue."

Stephen Brobst, CTO, Teradata , Teradata Magazine Online

You would never consider building a manufacturing plant without a blueprint because you wouldn't know if you had sufficient production space, ample storage room or if inventory could flow easily in and out of your production lines. So why build a data warehouse without first knowing the details of exactly where data will be stored?
