Data Warehouses are one of the most complex IT issues whose implementation demands much organizational preparation. In fact, its successful implementation demands specified levels of organizational culture and management's full support. Nevertheless, when data warehouses are owned by the government, a very professional approach in the creation of data warehouses, as well as usage of procedures for creating specifically prepared information for dissemination in the public sector, are imperative. Our research on the application of data warehouses in the Republic of Macedonia was focused on the biggest business companies, some governmental institutions and higher education institutions. We found out that there is an increasing usage of data warehouses especially in the business sector. However, the most complex data warehouse in Macedonia is the one with the State Office of Statistics (SOS). This is the backbone of the Macedonian public administration which aims at gathering, analyzing and dissemination of relevant information for entities which are living and working in the Republic of Macedonia. This implies that it is a very important state institution accountable for collecting and storing official information with a very serious approach towards data warehousing information for statistical data analysis. The serious role which has been attributed to this state institution requires a professional software tool and that is why SAS Data integration services tool has been selected.
