A data warehouse is essential for an organization to process and analyze data coming from the organization. Hence, a data warehouse together with a dashboard to visualize the processed data are built to accommodate the need of the church administrator to analyze a large set of church congregation data. The data warehouse is built using the Kimball principle. This Kimball principle emphasizes the implementation of a dimensional model in the data warehouse, not a relational model used in a regular transactional database. An ETL process that contains extract, transform and load processes is used to retrieve all data from the regular transactional database and transform the data so the data can be loaded into the data warehouse. A dashboard is then built to visualize the data from the data warehouse so the users can view the processed data easily. Users can also export the processed data into an excel file that can be downloaded from the dashboard. A web service is built to get data from the data warehouse and return it to the dashboard.
