Seize this unique opportunity to be certified in Data Vault modeling!

Benefiting from the Swiss Data Day, we organize the day before, on 7 November 2017, a certification training day in Data Vault modeling!

What does this course cover?

This course will guide you through the Data Vault modeling approach from modeling constructs and patterns to applying data vault principles in your DWBI program. This course covers also loading paradigms, architectures, and how to develop an effective overall data vault data warehouse program. Since data vault may be new for many of you, this course also includes a summary of the benefits of using data vault techniques.

Who Should Attend?

The target audience for this course includes data warehousing and business intelligence professionals, data modelers, data architects, model managers, data warehouse DBAs, data scientists, and ETL professionals. Because data vault modeling concepts are closely aligned with the business aspects of DWBI programs our target audience also includes program managers, business analysts, information modelers, information architects, and other BICC professionals.

Requirements and Pre-Requisites

This course does not require a computer or other device. Students should be prepared to take notes. All materials, work books, case books and exercises will be provided. There are no pre-requisites for this course. It is helpful if you bring any specific topics that you are interested in concerning data vault. It can also be useful if you have the time for web research on the topic prior to class. Depending on the course section, the first day of class may be preceded by 2 weeks of online on-demand video lessons.

FAQ

Q:  Who is the targeted customer?  

A:  Business analysts, ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) developers whose responsibility may be to design a company’s data storage system as well as Data modelers and architects.

 

Q:  What business problem does this course material help resolve?

A:  Companies have had issues with the ability to make changes to current data structures without interruption of data integrity and how data is retrieved, or data ingest/digest.  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 expeditiously.  Finally, security is a big concern for all companies and this modelling technique allows data components to be managed individually to prevent full data retrieval.

 

Q:  Now that I’ve been trained, how do I implement?

A:  A technical member of the Genesee Academy can review implementation steps and technical requirements.

 

Q:  What kind of support is offered once I implement the Data Modeling technique?

A:  A technical member of the Genesee Academy will provide support as long as you have the Data Vault solution.  

 

Q:  What does the training course offer me that I cannot obtain by just reading the book?

A:  People attending the course are modeling themselves all three days in class with other students and instructors in order to learn from others and apply what has been taught. Students then take a 3 hour exam with a modelling case.  

 

Q:  What will one achieve after visiting this training? What's the added value?

A:  After successful completion of the training, one should be able to start modeling an agile data warehouse.
