What is the impact of the trend? That is, how are the systems (databases, data marts, data warehouses) affected by the trend, when is the trend evident, and where does the issue exist or become obvious? Provide an example of the trend in action. Support the impact of the problem with at least three recent references.
Why does the trend exist? Discuss the conceptual basis, the nature of the trend, and outline of the trend as defined by the literature. Support the underlying cause of the trend(s) with at least three recent peer-reviewed references.
