As part of our continuous Data Vault Friday series, our adept BI Consultant, Lorenz Kindling, delves into a thought-provoking question posed by a keen member of our audience.

“A Link refers to multiple Hubs, but we only have one Record_Source in the Link. Or the Link is loaded from more than one Source System. What do we use as a Record Source?”
