A Data Architect’s Initial View of Data Vault
Wow this is really cool! A long time, experienced, Kimball-style architect had this to say (and more!) about the Data Vault:
The more I thought about it, the more I began thinking a traditional staging area and its complexities are a huge headache! The simpler design using the data vault methodology as the persistent staging area offers huge benefits over the traditional Kimball style data warehouse staging area. This includes repeatable code use in building and populating the data vault as well as the ability to easily account and validate the data.
That pretty much says it all.
