Stowe, VT May 28–30, 2015

World Wide Data Vault Consortium 2015 has been organized and facilitated - just like in the previous years - by Dan Linstedt, the inventor of the Data Vault Architecture (DV 1.0) and its extension - Data Vault 2.0. This time - in the picturesque Von Trapp Family Lodge; remember “High on a hill was a lonely goatherd/ Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo…”

However, this was no time for yodeling; the conference was packed with great presentations, demos, and discussions. Some of the speakers were industry’s leaders and well-known publishers such as Claudia Imhoff, Ph.D. (, Scott W. Ambler (SA+A), Kent Graziano (The Data Warrior ), and others. There were around 60 data vault practitioners - consultants, vendors, and customers - from at least 7 countries. And, of course, Dan Linstedt, like a mountain eagle, was watching and facilitated the event from the height of his expertise and know-how…

This year’s themes were dominated by concept and implementation of Data vault 2.0 – the evolution of the world-renown DV1.0; arguably, 7 out of 10 new EDW’s built in Data Vault “flavor”. Some of the presentations were:

  • Big Data, NoSQL and DV2.0 Modeling
  • Temporal Data Warehouse and Data Vault
  • EDW and Data Marts Virtualization
  • Event-Driven Real-Time EDW in the Cloud
  • Agile Big Data Warehousing with DV2.0
  • …and much more!

I was honored to have the opportunity to present WhereScape Solution for DV 2.0. In this presentation I described what both WhereScape products -3D and RED – have to offer to organizations to build an Information System with Big Data inclusion that is fully compliant with the DV2.0.

“Utilizing WhereScape 3D - DW planning tool - in conjunction with WhereScape RED - DW building tool – [WhereScape] provides a complete agile solution for discovering, profiling, planning, building, deploying, managing and renovating data warehouses and data marts” -- Participant

I appreciate Dan for giving me another opportunity to speak at his conventions. I would like to participate in future WWDVC events and highly recommend all the Data Warehouse and Business intelligence practitioners, Big Data enthusiasts and Data vault lovers to partake in the future WWDVC symposia as well as consider the crème de la crème Data Vault coaching from Dan Linstedt.
