A data mart is a subset of an enterprise data warehouse (EDW). An EDW is essentially a collection of dimensions (attributes of business objects such as customer or employee, etc) and facts which are essentially measurements. An EDW can have many facts and dimensions, so a subset of those facts and dimensions can represent a logical collection of information called a data mart.
