| Subj: || || Why not use star schema |
| From: || || Jeff Ohlman |
At our work site NCR has indicated that Star Schema is not recommended for Teradata. NCR recommends fully normalized tables for
Teradata. Can anybody tell us the exact technical reason for this recommendation? My guess is that Teradata does not suffer some of the
performance problems other databases experience with fully normalized data. We have not been able to find any definite information.
