Abstract: Though the origins of requirements engineering lie in software/information systems engineering, our study shows that requirements engineering in data warehouse systems is beginning to emerge as a stand-out, independent discipline. We show that failure statistics of both kinds of systems point to the common problem of defective requirements. Consequently, a number of models and techniques were developed in software/information systems for engineering the requirements of the system to-be. Initially, data warehouse requirements engineering was highly influenced by these. However, in recent years, new concepts and models specific to data warehouse requirements engineering have been proposed. We are seeing the emergence of a new discipline.
Keywords: data warehouse requirements engineering; business intelligence; data warehousing; transactional systems; decision making.
