First we interview the users, then we design a reporting model based on those interviews. We follow that up with mounds of ETL development to load the new model, basically keeping the user community in the dark during all that development. Does this sound familiar?
This presentation will demonstrate an alternative approach using the Data Vault Data Modeling technique to build a flexible, easily-extensible “Foundation” layer in our data warehouse with an Agile, iterative methodology. Relying on the Business Model and Mapping (BMM) functionality of OBIEE, we can rapidly virtualize a dimensional reporting model using the pattern-based Data Vault Foundation layer to decrease the time, and money, it takes to get BI content in front of end users. Attendees will see a sample Data Vault model designed iteratively and deployed to the semantic model of OBIEE.
