How Data Vault 2.0 Supports Your Data Governance Strategy – Part 1

Data Vault 2.0 is way more than just a data modeling approach. In fact it is an entire methodology and architecture for building business intelligence and analytic solutions. This is a post just released that I wrote for Data Rebels on how DV2 actually supports various aspects of data governance. Check it out.

With the growth of volume and diversity of data in recent years, it has become even more critical for organizations to develop an effective and scalable strategy for data governance and its closely aligned sibling discipline – Master Data Management. The importance of ensuring the security and the quality of data has never been more important than now. Add to that the increased pressures for regulatory compliance and privacy concerns, having a solid approach to data governance is no longer an option, it’s a necessity. In this 2-part blog series, I will discuss how the Data Vault 2.0 System of Business Intelligence addresses these concerns and incorporates both Data Governance and Master Data Management. 

Read the entire post here: Data Vault 2.0 and Data Governance – Part 1.

Stay tuned for Part 2!

It Depends (or Does It?) – Episode 13

A few weeks back, right after attending Snowflake Summit, I had the pleasure of chatting with Sanjeev Mohan on his podcast – It Depends. We spent an hour or so chatting about trends in modern data management, data mesh, data vault, my now semi-retired life as an advisor to several Snowflake partners, and my love of martial arts.

So sit back, relax (I did), and enjoy!

Aloha.

Why Automation is No Longer a Choice for Your Data Architecture

Back in the saddle again for The Data Warrior! Here is a piece I just did for the folks at Wherescape about one of my favorite topics – Automation!

The world of data has changed for sure. Especially over the past several years. In fact, the pandemic accelerated some changes, like the migration to cloud-based data platforms. When everyone needed to be remote, it just made sense to move to the cloud and use a service for your data platform.

Along with that came more data, more data types, and an actual business needs to move faster. Companies had to adapt very quickly during the pandemic if they wanted to survive. Many did and thrived while others, well, not so much.

As the demand for data continues to grow at unprecedented rates, and as it becomes a non-negotiable asset for organizational success, the requirement to rapidly deliver value from that data (i.e., turn it into information for data-driven decision making) has become an imperative.

So how do we deliver value faster with our data warehouses, data meshes, and enterprise data hubs? Automate, automate, automate.

WWDVC 2022 is almost here – Are you ready to “up” your Data Vault game?

Vermont is beautiful in May!

As the world is coming out of its pandemic induced isolation, its time we all got back to meetin’ and greetin’ our colleagues and peers in person. One of the things the last two years has taught us it that humans are social animals. We like being around other humans and some variety is good for our mental and emotional health (not that we don’t all love the families that we have been locked up with during this time). Not only that, but we learn and communicate better face to face. So much of our communication is nonverbal and just can’t be seen behind a mask, or a Zoom square.

Are you ready to get back out there, network with your peers, meet some Data Vault Masters, and work on your professional development around Data Vault? If you are then it is time to secure your seat at the 2022 World Wide Data Vault Consortium (WWDVC). As in past years, it will be held near the end of May at the lovely, and family friendly, Stoweflake Lodge in Stowe, Vermont.

Check out all the details, including HOLs, keynotes, and session topics, about WWDVC 2022 in this post by Cindi at DataRebels WWDVC 2022 is almost here

If you are already planning to go, you can just register here.

Keep on modeling!
