 Learning Objectives

Why do we organise this workshop ?

Data Vault modeling is rapidly becoming the standard modeling approach for the data warehouse. Over 1200 major international organizations are applying data vault modeling techniques today.

The data vault principles are specifically well suited for data integration and historization. When applied to data warehousing programs data vault modeling can provide the organization with some very compelling benefits. These include agility, auditability, adaptability, alignment with the business, and support for operational data warehousing initiatives.

To gain these benefits the organization will need to commit to both EDW program level factors as well as specific data vault modeling patterns, standards and methods. This course will guide you through these modeling patterns, rules and methods to prepare you for successful data vault modeling in your organization.

This course is delivered using a hybrid technique including 3 days in the classroom working including lectures and interactive group lab work. Plus 2 weeks of online on-demand video lectures and labs delivered on All course materials, labs, exercises, and online lessons are included in the course registration.

Successful completion of this course and the certification exam leads to the designation of certified data vault data modeler (CDVDM).

Upon registration you will receive a confirmation email. Then 2 weeks before the first day of class, you will receive an email with your login credentials for the online on-demand lessons. These lessons will be available 24 hours a day for 3 weeks. There are over 40 video based lectures and a detailed lab to get you introduced and to help you prepare for the course.

The 3 day certification classroom portion starts off with a Data Vault Review, which refreshes the basic concepts behind the Data Vault. Students are expected to interact with the instructor during this review. The review is followed by a Case-Study workshop where students will be divided up in teams. Each team will be responsible for building a different piece of the Data Vault Model - answering business questions, identifying assumptions, and drawing a Data Vault Model. This is the bulk of this class consisting of a total of 8 hours of learning time. At the end of which, the students will either hand-in their work or be asked to present to the rest of the class on their findings. The class then completes with a small prep-time for testing, and the administration of the Data Vault certification test.

Lab Work and Certification Test

Lab Work: We provide case-studies for the teams to utilize in the hands-on lab work. The test is written in English, we do not grade on grammar or spelling constructs – only on ideas and concepts. Two and a half hours are allowed for this test.

Turnaround time: expect the results of the certification test to be available 3 to 4 weeks after the class has been taken. We will notify each individual by e-mail, therefore the student must provide a working e-mail address upon registration for this course.
