Business Mapping & ELM Certification – Podclass

Deze training wordt als PodClass uitgevoerd!

This course is intended to cover the complete process from discovering and mapping the business concepts. After completion of this course and successfully taken the exam you will be a Certified Business Concept Maven 1.   The 6 ELM artifacts will guide you towards the ELM model as input for integration and data warehouse initiatives. Topics covered include understanding the concept behind the ELM, the modeling requirements and artifacts that drive this approach. We will include a brief introduction into the different Ensemble patterns like Data Vault, Anchor and Focal Point to learn why this approach benefits all.  With the guidance and exercises along all 6 ELM artifacts students will experience how to start from a business case and end up with a fully modeled and documented Ensemble Logical Model. Which in itself is ready to be implemented on any technical platform – which can be a physical data warehouse, a virtual data platform, a data lake or in a data mesh architecture.

This course consists of four (4) components: 1) the two day classroom course (online or on site), 2) the online video lessons, 3) the exam and 4) the course material.
