In our ongoing Data Vault Friday series, our CEO Michael Olschimke explores a valuable question from the audience, shedding light on the intricacies of modeling an SAP HRMS source with SCD type 2 data and dealing with time-dependent information in Data Vault 2.0.

“Could you please guide us on how to model an SAP HRMS Source that holds the data in SCD type 2 in the source itself with an effectivity start date and end date for each change? What will be the best way to deal with time-dependent data in Data Vault 2.0?”

In this enlightening video, Michael provides practical guidance on modeling strategies for incorporating SAP HRMS source data with Slowly Changing Dimension (SCD) type 2 attributes directly in the source. He addresses the complexities of handling time-dependent data within the Data Vault 2.0 framework, offering insights into the best practices for managing effectivity start and end dates for each change.

Michael shares valuable considerations and recommendations, providing a clear roadmap for efficiently handling time-dependent data scenarios in Data Vault 2.0 projects.
