After learning about the data warehouse concepts whole day, I couldn't found a source that can actually say when you should not do data warehousing. In most tutorials I read, it says that DW is for getting data from various sources and have it in one place(simplifying).
But my problem is that I have a single database on SQL Server, I need to just have a copy of it that I could use for analysis later on. I don't want to, in fact don't need to perform ETL etc. Just some way to have DW update after every one week or day. Can i skip these steps of designing and ETL for DW. What is the simplest solution and consequences to my problem.
