Drill to Detail Podcast: Data Modeling, Data Vault, and Snowflake!
My good friend Mark Rittman has embarked on a new adventure as an independent analyst and consultant. As part of his new venture Mark started a new podcast series on iTunes that he calls Drill to Detail where he will feature interviews discussing a range of topics related to data warehousing, business intelligence, analytics, and big data.
I was honored to be asked to take part in this new venture and got to spend a hour with Mark a few weeks back recording what is now Episode 5 of the series. In this interview we talk about:
- The need and relevance of data modeling in the big data world (which I wrote about recently)
- The Snowflake Elastic Data Warehouse and how it is changing the world of cloud data warehousing
- The Data Vault modeling methodology and how it helps organizations be agile
The podcast is about 60 minutes with each topic being about 20 minutes (so feel free to skip ahead if you are short on time). Please have a listen and let us know what you think in the comments below.

P.S. I will be speaking on these and related topics at a bunch of events over the next few weeks. Check out my speaking schedule and join me in person if you can!
