Data Vault Modeling in a Day, Lausanne

This is a course on data vault modeling. It covers the complete scope of topics required to understand the data vault modeling approach and how this approach supports the goals of the data warehouse.

Data Vault modeling is quickly becoming the standard approach for modeling the data warehouse. Compared to other popular approaches, data vault modeling represents a paradigm shift – a new way of thinking. Realizing the full benefits of this approach means embracing this new paradigm in its entirety. This course is intended to cover all of the key components that make up the data vault modeling paradigm – distilled into a single day. As such it goes beyond an introduction to arrive at a thorough and practical overview. Because there is a great deal to cover, this course includes a rich set of resources and materials. These are intended to support the learning process before and after the training day itself.

This course is intended for business intelligence and data warehousing professionals. The class is perfect for those who are just beginning to work with data vault. In addition, the course is well suited for those who have heard about data vault and are interested in learning what it really means.
