    Topics:

    Topic: How Data Vault Methodology provides major benefits to build and maintain an Agile Data Warehouse
    We will talk about the benefits of Data Vault 2.0 solution.  Specifically, we will focus in on the automation aspects of the methodology.  The Data Vault 2.0 system of business intelligence is geared to be repeatable, automatable, consistent, and well-defined (mature).  It is precisely because of these aspects that we can leverage automation tooling to achieve goals faster.  The real power is often overlooked, and that is the ability to move the people on the team towards agile ways of working.  Technology is only as good as the standards, and the consistency of the approach that the people apply.   Data Vault 2.0 solution outlines the necessary components for the team to follow in their methods of working so that they can achieve more in a shorter time frame with better quality.
