Data Warehouse Architecture Presentation

2013/02/26

I will be presenting the session “Data Warehouse Architecture” this Wednesday, Feb 27th at 11:00am CST to the PASS DBA virtual chapter.  Below is the abstract.  It will be a remote presentation that you can join online.  Details are here.  This will be the same presentation that I am giving at the PASS Business Analytics Conference in Chicago on April 10-12 and the SQL Saturday in Chicago on April 13th.  I hope you can make it!

Data Warehouse Architecture

You’re a DBA and your boss asks you to determine if a data warehouse would help the company.  So many questions pop into your head: Why use a data warehouse?  What is the best methodology to use when creating a data warehouse?  Should I use a normalized or dimensional approach?  What is the difference between the Kimball and Inmon methodologies?  Does the new Tabular model in SQL Server 2012 change things?  What is the difference between a data warehouse and a data mart?  Is there any hardware I can purchase that is optimized for a data warehouse?  What if I have a ton of data? During this session James will help you to answer these questions so your response to your boss will provoke amazement and lead to a big raise.  Or at least help to lead you down the correct path!
