I’ve begun researching Data Vault models on Hadoop solutions, including HadoopDB and Hive. Recently I came across a number of articles which describe the solutions of Hive and HadoopDB in detail on top of Hadoop solutions. I had to take a minute to write this article, to explain my view points of using the Data […]
Second look at technology stacks in the Hadoop, MapReduce arena, and beginning to consider the technology to implement for Data Vault model testing.
Column based data stores have been around for a long time. This blog will talk about what you need to do to make the Data Vault successful on a column based data store. It’s quite simple really, and in the end – some parts of physical data modeling don’t matter in a column based data […]

#dvseminar was fantastic, As an informal way of gathering information, if you’d really like to attend next year, please leave a comment at the end of this post with your name and email. We can put you on the notification list for next year! This post covers some highlights (from my perspective), I’d love to […]
A short discussion about the inputs you should be using to generate ETL / ELT and Data Vault Models. If your current vendor isn’t there yet, that’s ok – just ask them when they will, and why they haven’t yet gotten there.
I have a potential opportunity for consultants, or a team of implementation consultants interested in working for one of my prospective clients. The gig is just now being specified, could be several months long. It’s in the US, Washington DC area. I need 3 to 4 CERTIFIED Data Vault consultants who may be interested, or […]
