Quick update – if you have been waiting to get your Data Vault 2.0 certification there are three sessions coming in the new few months right in the USA. If you already know you want to do that, just skip down to the links and sign up!
Why Data Vault?
The Data Vault 2.0 architecture gives you an entire systems based approach to developing a true enterprise data warehouse and analytics architecture. It is very structured, pattern based, and highly repeatable. In Data Vault, each component does it’s duty, and does it well. The engineering components are generally relegated to automation tools (because it is pattern based), so human effort is not wasted in the mundane and can be used in more interesting, intelligent and thinking tasks. It’s a much better use of intelligent beings as well as machines.
Separating the concerns makes design and development not just easy, but fast.
As a side effect projects using Data Vault 2.0 have always saved a lot of money and have been extremely successful with their predictable goals. Plus they are very resilient so they tend to stay in use for years to come with little or no re-engineering! One of my systems has been running for 14 years now – and was even successfully re-platformed in that time.
How do you get in on this innovative approach?
If you want to learn more (and why wouldn’t you?), there are many upcoming opportunities across the world to get more information about Data Vault 2.0 (just check Twitter or LinkedIn – look for #DataVault).
