Subj:   Re: Distributed Data Warehousing Question

The advantages to distributed data warehousing are many and varied yet different from those of a centralized data warehouse.

Historically, corporations have been cyclical between centralized and distributed data processing efforts. The trend generally follows the success of the company. When a company is successful, the trend is toward centralization which, of course, requires a greater expense. When a company is experiencing leaner times, the trend is toward distribution.

Again, I don't want to argue the pros and cons. Volumes could be written for either side. I am just seeking information as to whether or not Teradata technology allows "separate data marts (at different physical locations) communicating selected database table information back to a single user query".

If not, then does Teradata have intentions of meeting this need at some point in the future?
