1) What are physical database design tradeoffs for decision 
   support data?

by Dan Power

Implementing a decision support database involves tradeoffs. 
A designer needs to transform an ideal, logical data model 
into a model that exploits effectively the capabilities and 
constraints of the actual hardware computing environment and 
a specific database management system. The overall goal is 
designing the database component of a data-driven DSS to minimize 
query times. Efficient use of storage space is much less a concern. 
Tradeoffs involve reasonably safe design changes, more aggressive 
compromises and technical optimization changes (cf., Haughey, 2006). 
There is no single best physical design. DSS analysts must ask 
probing questions and understand the design tradeoffs.
