Data Vault Modeling is a database modeling technique that provides long-term historical storage of data that originates from multiple sources. A data vault stores a single version of the facts, or “all the data, all the time”. Its flexible, scalable, consistent and adaptable design encompasses the best aspects of 3rd normal form (3NF) and star schema.
In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to build a Data Vault.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Understand the architecture and design concepts behind Data Vault 2.0, and its interaction with Big Data, NoSQL and AI.
- Use data vaulting techniques to enable auditing, tracing, and inspection of historical data in a data warehouse.
- Develop a consistent and repeatable ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) process.
- Build and deploy highly scalable and repeatable warehouses.
