The concept of data warehousing dates back to the late 1980s[9] when IBM

researchers Barry Devlin and Paul Murphy developed the "business data
warehouse". In essence, the data warehousing concept was intended to provide
an architectural model for the flow of data from operational systems to decision
support environments. The concept attempted to address the various problems
associated with this flow, mainly the high costs associated with it. In the
absence of a data warehousing architecture, an enormous amount of
redundancy was required to support multiple decision support environments. In
larger corporations it was typical for multiple decision support environments to
operate independently. Though each environment served different users, they
often required much of the same stored data. The process of gathering,
cleaning and integrating data from various sources, usually from long-term
existing operational systems (usually referred to as legacy systems), was
typically in part replicated for each environment. Moreover, the operational
systems were frequently reexamined as new decision support requirements
emerged. Often new requirements necessitated gathering, cleaning and
integrating new data from "data marts" that were tailored for ready access by
users.

Key developments in early years of data warehousing were:

1960s – General Mills and Dartmouth College, in a joint research project,
develop the terms dimensions and facts.[10]
1970s – ACNielsen and IRI provide dimensional data marts for retail sales.
[10]
1970s – Bill Inmon begins to define and discuss the term: Data Warehouse.

1975 – Sperry Univac introduces MAPPER (MAintain, Prepare, and Produce
Executive Reports) is a database management and reporting system that
includes the world's first 4GL. First platform designed for building Information
Centers (a forerunner of contemporary Enterprise Data Warehousing platforms)
1983 – Teradata introduces a database management system specifically
designed for decision support.
1984 – Metaphor Computer Systems, founded by David Liddle and Don
Massaro, releases Data Interpretation System (DIS). DIS was a
hardware/software package and GUI for business users to create a database
management and analytic system.
1988 – Barry Devlin and Paul Murphy publish the article An architecture for a
business and information system where they introduce the term "business data
warehouse".[11]
