From the Paper:

"Data warehousing is one of the hottest developments of the 1990s. In 1998, the expenditure on data warehousing was $14 600 million (META Group 1996). It is estimated that 95% of the Fortune 1000 either have a data warehouse or are planning to develop one (META Group 1996). A data warehouse may help increase a company's sales by supporting decision-making and understanding consumer behavior. For example, Office Depot sales increased by $117 million after investing on data warehousing (Anthes 2003)."
