Keep these Pentaho Architecture principles in mind while you are working through this document:

  1. Architecture is important, above all else.
  2. Platforms are always evolving: sometimes you will have to think creatively.

Some of the things discussed here include schema maintenance, schema object naming, specific dimension handling, and measure, dimension, and hierarchy definitions.
