Abstract

Data warehouse implementations at the sector levels, especially at the national agricultural level are non-existent. Designing an agricultural data warehouse poses unique and significant challenges because traditionally the collection and dissemination of information have been extremely parochial. Moreover, there has been very little adoption of information technology. Recently the Government of India has embarked on an ambitious project of designing and deploying a data warehouse for the agricultural sector with the intent of using the system for macro level planning decisions. The paper presents some of the design challenges the project has faced and solutions undertaken. It is hoped that the paper will help other such large scale, sector level warehouse designs learn from our experiences.
