Future data in data warehouse?

Rephrased question: Does data warehouse store future data (meaning forecasts or predictions) ?

Answer: Data warehouses stores whatever the company/business has decided to store. There is nothing that stops anyone from storing forecasts. So if forecasts are created and if these needs to be stored then yes it is stored.

For example, for a Gas group in the UK we did a project in which we had to store the forecasts for the next 25 years and this was an yearly exercise, which means every year the forecasts for the next 25 years was stored and versioned, so we would be able to fetch the differences between the forecasts too.
