Data Warehouse Advanced Modeling Techniques

I’m yet again pleased to announce that on the next month (19th February 2014) I’ll deliver the Advanced version of our Data Warehouse Workshop with my friend Thomas Kejser. The venue will be Stockholm again (really a lovely city) but this time we’ll be at the

World Trade Center
Klarabergsviadukten 70
107 24 Stockholm, Sweden

This is the agenda:

  • Logical data models: What are they good for?
    • Comparing Inmon and Kimball
  • Demystifying meta data: Meta Models and auto generated ETL
    • Metadata Driven ETL
  • Understanding modern hardware: Co-Located data in SMP and MPP systems
    • How to create a balanced system
  • Why normalization is bad for data warehouses, and what you can do about it
  • Best Practices, Naming Conventions, Lesson Learned
  • Choosing between column and row stores
  • Keys, master data and mapping layers
  • Tracking history in the warehouse
  • Handling changing user requirements
  • High speed data loading – and reloading
  • Unit Testing

I can tell you that this is really something unique, just like the one we already did one year ago and the one we delivered at SQL Rally, the blends and summarize years and years of experience, that, if you’re into BI, you should not miss at all.

See you there!

Davide,

The agenda looks promising and the teachers very well recognized in this area.

Are you considering bringing this workshop to the United States of America?

Best wishes,

Alejandro

Do you have any other dates planned for this ?.

Hi Davide,

I attended the Advanced Modeling Techniques workshop in Stockholm a couple of weeks ago. Are the slides and demo scripts available somewhere? I remember you writing an url on the whiteboard, but I must have got it wrong because I can't be able to find that location.

Great workshop!

Best regards,

Johanna
