Right now I´m working in a BI solution and I received a set of tables with a multidimensional structure. I have a Fact table with transaction from customers and several dimensional tables. One of them is the KUNDE or customer table, in which the typical customer information is stored, like customer key, a key to another table (contact details), customer since date, etc. I also found numeric values in this table like "amount of purchases last 12 Month" or "Total shopping days" inside this table. That makes me wonder if it makes sense or not to store this measures inside the table, moreover, I'm building another table to store the customer data as a type II SCD and I´m not able to persuade the analyst to not include measures in this table.
What is your opinion about that?
Any comment would be appreciated.
