Hello I am new with analysis service and datawarehousing, therefore I have this basic question. I once saw the following practice and I would like to ask if this is a very simplistic "data warehouse" or in fact is just a "regular" database: A company consolidates sales data into a single SQL Server 2000 database. A web reporting software is used to query the data. One must have Analysis Service running to in fact say that you have a data warehouse? Thanks a lot.
