There are enormous potential benefits in leveraging the wisdom of published and proven data model patterns to quickly create robust and extensible enterprise views of your information. Likewise, the advantages of Data Vault (DV), and its underlying patterns, are gaining well-deserved recognition. But are these two pattern-based movements likely to clash, or can they be peacefully and productively combined? 

This session provides a real-world perspective on how an enterprise quickly and painlessly (well, almost painlessly!) reaped the benefits of both pattern movements. The presenter created a “Universal Data Vault” pattern that supported long-term strategies while delivering tangible value in the short term, without trashing existing software investments.

What You Will Learn

Based on a recent, real-world case study, a perspective will be gained as to how (1) published data model patterns, and (2) data vault architectures, can be combined to deliver "quality at speed" to an organization.
