Just because I think Google tools are cool...

A marriage of google and BI...not bad. I'll link here to Mark's blog to let you see what I mean.
Google has long been (whether you knew it or not) a VERY heavy database-centric company, and they are harnessing the concept of SAAS like few others. This is a great representation of a nice tool with some 'oopmh!' (Is that a word?) I expect Google to grow more powerful in this space. We'll see. I'll be watching.

Helpful Links on Data Warehousing Fundamentals

These might not all be 'fundamentals' but the articles at this link are solid. Many may not apply to you since they are great when applied to very specific situations (such as modeling multiple employee dimensions).

In general though, I think many people can learn something here. Kimball and sometimes Margy Ross here share good insight. They're not going to give you the gold nuggets that you'll likely get from their paid training, but the articles will get you thinking about your design.
