In our recurring Data Vault Friday series, Michael Olschimke, our CEO, addresses a thought-provoking question.

“A record from change data capture has a column with the type of operation (CREATE / DELETE / UPDATE) and multiple timestamp columns and it is inserted in the staging area. The record is going to be loaded in append-only (insert-only) in the Raw Data Vault. Are there attention points between CDC and Raw Data Vault to pay attention compared to a traditional loading of files in the staging area?”

Michael delves into the key considerations and nuances that distinguish the loading process of CDC data into the Raw Data Vault from the conventional method of loading files in the staging area. He sheds light on the potential attention points, highlighting crucial aspects to bear in mind during the append-only (insert-only) loading process.

For those grappling with the challenges of integrating CDC data seamlessly into the Raw Data Vault, Michael’s insights in this Data Vault Friday session provide valuable guidance and actionable tips.
