In our ongoing Data Vault Friday series, our CEO Michael Olschimke addresses a thought-provoking question raised by a member of our audience.

“In our data warehouse architecture, we have integrated a Data Vault 2.0 approach with a logical industry model: once the raw data has been loaded into the Raw Data Vault, the data undergoes a transformation into the Business Vault. This follows the logical design, maintaining the Data Vault style but derived from the industry model. Subsequently, it is further transformed into the business access layer, forming an information mart.

However, despite the initial intent of adopting a best-of-breed approach, there’s a realization that somewhere along the way, agility was compromised.”

In this enlightening video, Michael delves into the challenges faced in a data warehouse architecture that combines a Data Vault 2.0 approach with a logical industry model. Specifically, he addresses the placement of logical vendor models within this framework, exploring ways to maintain agility in the process.
