Data Mart


A Data Mart, in contrast to a Data Warehouse, is a database of information collected from operational and other systems, which is made available to a group of users to meet a specific Business Need. The presence of a Data Mart often suggests the presence of a Data Warehouse, but not necessarily so. In general, a Data Warehouse tends to be implemented for strategic long term reasons, whereas a data mart tends to be tactical and directed at meeting an immediate business need.
