Data Warehouse Architecture Presentation Slides

Thanks to everyone who attended my “Data Warehouse Architecture” presentation to the South Florida PASS chapter.

Here is the PowerPoint presentation: Data Warehouse Architecture

Data Warehouse Architecture – comparing Kimball and Inmon methodologies

You’re a DBA and your boss asks you to determine if a data warehouse would help the company.  So many questions pop into your head: Why use a data warehouse?  What is the best methodology to use when creating a data warehouse?  Should I use a normalized or dimensional approach?  What is the difference between the Kimball and Inmon methodologies?  Does the new Tabular model in SQL Server 2012 change things?  What is the difference between a data warehouse and a data mart?  Is there any hardware I can purchase that is optimized for a data warehouse?  What if I have a ton of data? During this session James will help you to answer these questions so your response to your boss will provoke amazement and lead to a big raise.  Or at least help to lead you down the correct path!
