At the World Wide Data Vault Consortium, Dan Linstedt, inventor of Data Vault 2.0 and expert in data warehousing and BI implementation, launched the Data Vault Alliance, a new global community which seeks to unite data vault experts, vendors, and practitioners and enhance expertise and sharing of best practices for Data Vault 2.0 use within IT organizations worldwide.
The Data Vault Alliance will connect data professionals involved with data vault initiatives and offers training, certification, and other resources online to help organizations build Data Vault 2.0 competency and increase project success rates. It is increasingly being adopted by data warehousing teams of all sizes given the methodology’s strong resiliency to business and technology change, improved scalability, and data consistency.
Linstedt is working with industry partners to develop the new community, including premier partner WhereScape, a provider of data infrastructure automation software. Data vault automation software, such as WhereScape® Data Vault Express, fast-tracks data vault projects while ensuring teams adhere to Data Vault 2.0 principles. Linstedt has stated data vault automation is key to organizations reaping the benefits of Data Vault 2.0 as quickly as possible.
Members of the Data Vault Alliance will receive access to education, tools, and resources that will empower them to learn, practice, and innovate in the use of Data Vault 2.0. Through the Data Vault Alliance website, members can access world-class training, professional development certifications, organizational assessment tools, directories of authorized Data Vault 2.0 vendors, and mentoring opportunities. The website will also host both a business channel and a technical channel to assist members in the understanding and use of Data Vault 2.0 throughout an organization.
