Thank you for your videos.

My question is, what is the different between Data Warehouse Modeling and Database Management System? Are they same?

Data Warehouse Database
Used for Online Analytical Processing (OLAP), helps in business decision Used for Online Transactional Processing (OLTP), helps to manage online transactions
It is designed for read operation It is designed for both read and write operation
Simple architecture Complex architecture
Work with historical data  Work with fresh data

Entity-Relationship (ER) is extensively used for database design in relational database environment. Similarly we use Multidimensional (MD) Data Modeling is the data modeling technique in Data Warehouse.

Thank you for your answers they are rely good.

What I am looking for is something that helps me to design any kind of database such as Cafe shop, School, Small business. Someone told me you have to learn how to breakdown your data into pieces and then apply it to Microsoft Access, SQL, and etc. So, is the DBMS the right spot? if I follow DBMS I will be able to design any kind of databases?

I look forward to your kind reply.
