Traditional dimensional modeling techniques are destined to fail in modern BI and analytics programs. Chris Adamson, the world’s leading expert on dimensional modeling, will show you why and teach you what to do about it.
The best practices of dimensional modeling were established in the 1990s, before the advent of analytics, self-service, nonrelational data, agile methods, and data governance. Chris will demonstrate how these expanded interests conflict with classic dimensional approaches and provide you with new techniques for scoping, requirements, design, and refactoring. Nothing is sacred, not even conformed dimensions!
You will also learn how to adapt to new data architectures, changed organizational structures, agile development methods, and nonrelational data management technologies. Both data modelers and non-modelers will learn how to use dimensional concepts to drive requirements that are actionable and useful.
This course is intended for anyone who contributes to data mart requirements and development, the publication of data sets, or data modeling:
