problem 1: Define a job scheduling strategy which will meet business requirement of reporting availability by 6am CST for the given cubes? Show the job scheduling dependencies in a pictorial form so that it is simple to understand.
a) Finance cube (3 hours to build)
b) Warranty cube (4 hours to build)
c) Order cube (2 hours to build)
d) Customer master data (30 min run time)
e) Vendor master data (60 min run time)
f) Product master data (60 min run time)
g) Other Master data (2 hour run time)
Finance and Order cubes can’t run altogether.
problem 2: The above cubes are used by the NA and EU users, NA users will only use NA data and EU users will use merely EU data however Master data is common for both NA and EU. The necessity of availability stays same for NA (6AM CST) and for EU reports/cubes must be available by 6am CET.
What modifications you require to make to the job scheduling proposal of problem 1 to meet the necessity of problem 2?
CST: NA Central Standard Time
CET: EU Central European Time.
