#datavault 2.0 hashes versus natural keys

Published on 2014/10/02 by in Data Vault

There’s been some discussion, nay, arguments of late – around whether or not to replace surrogates in DV2 models with Hashes, or to simply use natural keys… ok – perhaps Natural keys is too strong a word, maybe business keys is a softer side (as frequently found, source system models these days usually contain surrogates acting as business keys, and natural keys are no where to be found).  This blog entry (albeit short) will explain the pros and cons of each.  I welcome you to add your thoughts to this post (on LinkedIn “Data Vault Discussions” group).

#NoSQL platforms and #datavault curiosity, #bigdata, #datamodeling

Published on 2014/07/01 by in Data Vault

I recently had the pleasure of an e-mail exchange with regard to NoSQL platforms (one in particular), and the use of Data Vault Models.  I need to start by saying that this post is published with permission of the author of the email question.  In this post I will dive a little deeper in to the work that Sanjay Pande, Michael Olschimke, and I are working on together around Big Data, NoSQL, Data Vault Modeling.  This is all still work in progress.  I am more than happy to entertain corrections, additional thoughts, comments, and questions – just post them at the end of the blog.

Published on 2014/06/30 by in Data Vault

Welcome back for those of you following my series of posts.  Thank-you.  For those who haven’t read my posts yet – (yes, that’s you), why not?  (just kidding), anyhow, this is the third in a series of posts on Big Data, Data Lakes, turning data in to an asset for your organization.  In this entry I will discuss business keys, data vault, with a focus on machine generated files (which have no good natural business key – or so you say).

Why Business Keys are Asset Valuation Pieces, #bigdata, #nosql, #datavault

Published on 2014/06/30 by in Data Vault

In my previous entry I spoke about the nature of data lakes, and data swamps.  I introduced two central themes to making unstructured data and multi-structured data useful (ie measurable as an asset to the business).  In this post I will dive a little deeper in to the notion of business keys, why they are important, and the kinds of business questions you can and shouldbe asking from ANY business intelligence solution.
