But, there are no such rules. To Data Mart or Not to Data Mart? 43 TABLE 2-1 ■ A Comparison of Data Marts versus an Enterprise Data Warehouse ■ Data Mart (DM) Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) 1. Defined set of functions – solves a specific set of departmental/ industry problems 1. Multifunction use – solves a multitude of problems (enterprise wide) 2. Departmental clients 2. Enterprise-wide clients 3. Mostly tactical decision support 3. Strategic and tactical decision support 4. Typically smaller volumes of data within the context of the enterprise 4.
