Learn from the best

Introduction Class

Learn and understand the

principles of Data Vault 2.0

This 1-day introductory class explains Data Vault 2.0 and all its pillars to a general audience. It helps business analysts and managers, involved in an agile data warehouse project based on Data Vault 2.0, to understand the principles and decisions made.

This class generally helps to increase management support of Data Vault 2.0 projects by explaining concepts such as managed self-service Business Intelligence, agile delivery of functionality, and agile requirements management. The amount of content in this class is equal to the content covered on the first day of the Boot Camp.

Boot Camp Class



The boot camp is a 3-day introductory and intermediate class that takes you through the why, what, and how of Data Vault 2.0. It covers the business justifications and technical descriptions of all pillars of Data Vault 2.0: the architecture, implementation, methodology, and modeling components. The course provides ETL design paradigms, working templates (both conceptual and SQL) and best practices for successful Data Vault 2.0 implementation.

Each student will receive a certification of attendance from Scalefree. In addition, students can attend one private certification test for free, to become a Certified Data Vault 2.0 Practitioner (CDVP2) as outlined by Dan Linstedt. You can select the option “without certification” option in the registration if you do not want to receive the certificate of attendance and test (-300 ).

Basic Modeling



The 1-day introductory course, focuses on getting your team started in Data Vault 2.0 Data Modeling. It covers the basics and functions of the Data Vault 2.0 concept. It also contains a hands-on case study to help participants become familiar with the principles and concepts.

The goal of this class is to guide students towards understanding the consequences of the different modeling options when loading data into the enterprise data warehouse, as well as how to derive useful information for the business.

Note that this class (or verifiable skills in Data Vault modeling) is a prerequisite for the private certification to a Certified Data Vault 2.0 Practitioner.

In-house Training



The Introduction is also available as an in-house class. Taking place in the privacy of your own office, real life case studies from your company can be used throughout the training. Really get a feel for how Data Vault 2.0 can help your specific company process and analyze its internal and external data. In-house training sessions are also available in combination with an assessment.


Get access to our profound Data Management knowledge

When we consult our clients we are setting them up for long term data success. Our experienced and certified consultants know how to leverage Big Data concepts such as Data Vault 2.0 into your organization. We have helped customers to derive a 360-degree understanding of the complete business processes. Our consultants know how to combine structured operational data, unstructured web data, and data from real-time Internet of Things.

Our knowledge is based on years of research and expertise. Dan Linstedt, inventor of Data Vault 2.0, co-founded Scalefree and shares his knowledge with all of our consultants. The main goal of our consultancy service is to help organizations achieve long-term success.

All his knowledge is available to our consultants in helping support organizations achieve a long-term success. A success that scales well into the future of ever-increasing data volumes at high velocity, and with less structures in the data.

The impact of our consulting goes far beyond our direct engagements. Our approach to consulting has always been to empower our clients to be able to solve their challenges on their own. Because an extensible architecture is in place, run by empowered people, backed by a scale-free data model that is proven to load structured and unstructured data, at high volumes, and high velocity.


Get insight in your current system

Data Vault 2.0 is a flexible concept that can be tailored to many business scenarios. There are (at least) a thousand ways to set up a specific Big Data scenario using Data Vault 2.0. The goal of any Data Vault system should be to source all data from all source systems at all times, and to produce any information desired by the information consumer in a fully auditable way. An ineffective implementation of Data Vault 2.0 might not contain these capabilities for improvement or, even worse, change the original data in an unwanted way.

During our assessments, we review the data warehouse system of our clients and explain advantages of following standards and industry best practices. All of this helps to secure our client’s investments in their business intelligence infrastructure.

As a result of the assessment, you would gain deep insight into your own data warehouse and business intelligence systems. Finally, you’ll receive an assessment report with a documented list of deviations from best practices and Data Vault standards, the impact of these deviations, and actionable recommendations to resolve these issues. This way we make sure your company can build and maintain a successful data warehouse method and Big Data solution on its own for the long run.


Complete delivery by our top-notch team

Let us handle the implementation of Data Vault 2.0. We gladly take on the full responsibility of implementing all the necessary features, with our top-notch team trained by the inventor of Data Vault himself.
