Our architects have a proven track record in the design and solution architecture definition when it comes to data integration and data warehousing. All have been certified in Data Vault 2.0.
The leaders of thought in the world of Data Warehousing are Kimball, Inmon and Dan Linstedt (in chronological order). Each of these thinkers has introduced and exposed its theory to the entire enterprise data warehouse community to reflect, define an anti – thesis or alternative. When we look back, we see a constantly evolving insight reflected in ideas to become more complete, agile and realistic in real – life environments. Data Vault, as the latest concept introduced by Dan Linstedt, was created as a method for data modeling and was added to the architecture vision ‘The Corporate Information Facory’ of Bill Inmon. In the meantime Data Vault has grown into a Data Warehousing standard and it brings with it a number of advantages:
- Resilience to change: the impact of change is kept to a minimum
- The initial construction and later modifications of the existing data warehouse can be automated
- Data Vault 2.0 bridges the gap between classic relational technologies and Hadoop and nosql
- Data Vault 2.0 opens the door for the future next big step: adaptive data warehouses or dynamic data warehousing (automatic adaptation to changes in the source system without human intervention).
Data Vault starts with the single version of actual data as it exists in the source systems w hich in turn can support different versions of the truth.
Taking into account all previous elements, Data Vault 2.0 is today the best available modeling and architecture proposition because it is an answer to the challenges that are felt more strongly today. We hereby offer our solution for the automation of this Data Vault 2.0 layer within the Data Warehouse: The Foundation Accelerator 4.0
