this article was written by a couple of authors and submitted to a conference that happened recently. it walks through some of the conceptual modeling around data vault, as well as taking a look at anchor modeling, and common approaches. it is really well written, and worth a read if you have the desire.
by the way, i am happy to announce the next class that will be arriving in the on-line training area:
informatica etl for data vault – implementation best practices
those that have already purchased the fundamentals class will have the ability to purchase the new course first, and most likely will be given a discount.
*even if you are already certified* the existing fundamentals class can really help you. there are several brand new sections on sourcing problems and solutions, and targeting problems and solutions – focused on performance and tuning, regardless of etl tool, or even if you are using sql for loading.
