The concept of real-time data warehousing has grown in popularity in recent years as organizations demand access to critical pieces of data in real-time to produce analytics and make business decisions to gain competitive advantage. Real-time data warehousing systems differ substantially from traditional data warehousing systems, thus, presenting a unique set of organizational and operational challenges. The basis for the research was to investigate whether adequate information is available regarding the organizational and operational challenges of real-time data warehousing and whether that information is available to the database community. This exploration was done by gathering primary research, conducting a case study research design, and comparing, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from the two different types of research. The information for the primary research was gathered from scholarly, peer reviewed articles, and books on Google Scholar and ACM, computer science and database journals, various textbooks, and the Internet. The case study was conducted on an organization utilizing a real-time data warehousing system.
