Data Warehousing embraces technology and industrial practice to systematically collect data from the enterprise and to use that  data in a highly aggregated form for managing the enterprise  thru decisions. Little attention is currently paid to design and manage a data warehouse (DW) in such a way that it accomplishes its purpose, i.e. to support the management of the enterprise. This workshop is intended as a forum to fill this gap. We cordially invite  participants both from the application industry and research to submit papers.  An incomplete list of research and experience topics to be discussed at the workshop is given below. We especially encourage experts of the DW application industry to submit experience papers.
