In our ongoing Data Vault Friday series, our CEO Michael Olschimke addresses a crucial question from the audience that highlights a common challenge in data projects.

“I’m currently working on a project where the ‘environments’ (Dev, Prod, Test) are not well administrated. This topic is not mentioned at all in the DV2.0 methodology. Could you please elaborate on the roles of these environments and how to correctly use and manage them? As context, the problem faced at the moment by the company is that they’re not being able to test correctly and then implement. Also, the environments don’t necessarily count with the same information.”

In this insightful video, Michael provides a comprehensive discussion on the roles and importance of environments (Development, Production, Test) in the context of Data Vault 2.0 methodology. He addresses the challenges faced by the company, emphasizing the critical role that well-administered environments play in testing, implementing, and ensuring data consistency across different stages.

Michael shares practical insights into the correct utilization and management of environments, offering guidance on establishing a robust environment strategy within the Data Vault framework.
