Presentation held on may 6th 2011 on the Advanced Dat Vault seminar in the Netherlands:
Abstract: Data Warehousing is still being ridiculized by popular literature and opportunistic vendors (and sometimes analysts) in the Business Intelligence domain - they tend to call it 'traditional' as opposed to their 'silver bullet technology'.
However, data warehousing has evolved and Data Vault - although undervalued by many - is fueling this evolution. Data Vault methodology enables architects to (finally) embed data warehousing into the Enterprise Architecture, something they struggled with the last 15 years. In the Netherlands, Data Vault sky rocketed innovation in the data warehousing scene. Accelerators in terms of frameworks and software are being build by experts in the field and several product vendors picked up on it. The presentation of Ronald Damhof will discuss briefly the evolution of data warehousing as it stands today, the position of Data Vault in the Enterprise Architecture, the different species/forks that exist in Data Vault and the automation that comes with it.
