I am fortunate enough to have been selected to give a presentation at the PASS Business Analytics Conference in San Jose, CA on May 7-9. My presentation will be on Thursday, May 8th from 1:30-2:30pm. Below is my presentation abstract along with more info about the conference. I hope to see you there!
Building an Effective Data Warehouse Architecture
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!
