Agile BI with Data Vault Scot Reagin, Master Builder, and Steve NogradiSensible Data Integrations Inc.

Agility and Business Intelligence are two good things that often struggle to be good together. A primary cause of this struggle is the inability of traditional Data Warehouse models to respond to change in a (business) timely manner. Data Vault is an evolution of Enterprise Data Warehouse modeling that removes the barriers to Data Warehouse agility. A Data Vault warehouse eliminates re-engineering both of the data schema and ETL as the model evolves in response to changing business needs and definitions.In this session we’ll compare modeling techniques in real world scenarios to understand how Data Vault can make your EDW more capable and agile.
