Data Vault Express

This 2 day instructor-led course is for any Data Vault Developer who wishes to use the automated features of WhereScape 3D and WhereScape Red to create their Data Vault.


The course includes using WhereScape 3D to discover, profile and document a source system database, capture user stories, build a model conversion, design the dimensional model, design the Data Vault (automation) and export the resulting XML to WhereScape RED.

In WhereScape RED you will learn how to build the entire Data Mart as well as creating a scheduled job to populate the data from the source system, through the Data Vault and into the Data Mart.

Finally you will create and display the fully documented DV and DM.
