Why do we organise this course on Data Vault and Enterprise Data Warehousing (EDW) ?
Data Vault modelling is quickly becoming the standard approach for modelling the data warehouse. Compared to other popular approaches, Data Vault modelling represents a paradigm shift - a new way of thinking. Realising the full benefits of this approach means embracing this new paradigm in its entirety.
This course is designed to give you a consistent and clear message of the fundamentals of the Data Vault modelling paradigm. It is much more than an introduction: you get a sound and practical overview of the features - in a single day. Because there is so much to say about Data Vault, you also get a lot of exclusive background information, supporting your learning during and after this seminar. The seminar ends with an "assessment exercise" to test your knowledge and understanding of Data Vault.
This course, the background reading material and the assessment test are designed by Hans Hultgren, founder of Genesee Academy and author of the book "Modeling the Agile Data Warehouse with Data Vault (Volume 1)". You get this book free with you participation.
What will you learn in this Data Vault Modelling workshop ?
This course is intended as an initial introduction into the data vault modelling approach. Next to a global introduction, this course covers the modeling components of the data vault - the Hub, Link and Satellite. These components will be illustrated and trained via group exercises. The course ends with an assessment test to see if you have understood the basic theory and practice of Data Vault modelling.
This training is intensive and interactive. During this one-day course we cover:
We also discuss the benefits of using this approach and some guidelines as to how we can apply Data Vault modelling to our own data warehouse program. In addition this course covers data warehousing business intelligence considerations that support these techniques as well as some practical modelling topics.
Who should attend this seminar ?
This course is intended for business intelligence and data warehousing professionals seeking a strong introduction to Data Vault modelling.
