Traditionally the data warehouse (DW) has been treated in pure technical terms based on the hypothesis that the investment in technology necessarily bring about predetermined solutions. The observation of empirical cases seems to contradict this point o view by placing the role of people and the emergent use of technology in first place. The paper examines the results of DW use in three organizations that have been using it for four years, using the same software in their recurrent practices. This project aims at identifying the emergent uses of DW and the driving forces that seem to bring forth different and unexpected results.

Abstract

Traditionally the data warehouse (DW) has been treated in pure technical terms based on the hypothesis that the investment in technology necessarily bring about predetermined solutions. The observation of empirical cases seems to contradict this point o view by placing the role of people and the emergent use of technology in first place. The paper examines the results of DW use in three organizations that have been using it for four years, using the same software in their recurrent practices. This project aims at identifying the emergent uses of DW and the driving forces that seem to bring forth different and unexpected results.
