In our ongoing series, Michael Olschimke, our CEO, engages with a viewer’s question:

“If you get CDC data and insert/update/delete flag, then would you split it to separate satellite table or leave it on regular sat?”

The specific query revolves around handling CDC (Change Data Capture) data, particularly when faced with insert/update/delete flags. The viewer seeks guidance on whether to split this data into separate satellite tables or retain it within a regular satellite.

In response, Michael addresses the intricacies of managing CDC flags within the Data Vault framework. He explores the pros and cons of both approaches, providing valuable insights into the considerations that influence the decision-making process. This session offers practical advice on structuring satellite tables to effectively capture and utilize CDC flags in a Data Vault environment.

For those grappling with the nuances of integrating CDC data seamlessly into their Data Vault setup, Michael’s expertise provides clarity and actionable recommendations, making this episode of Data Vault Insights a valuable resource.
