Developing a data warehouse (DW) is a complex, time consuming and prone to fail task. Different DW models and methods have been presented during the last few years. However, none of them addresses the whole development process in an integrated manner. In this paper, we present a DW development method, based on the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the Unified Process (UP), which addresses the design and development of both the DW back-stage and front-end. We extend the UML in order to accurately represent the different parts of a DW. Our proposal provides a seamless method for developing DWs.
