TX Agile Dimensional Modeling
This two-day training course provides a solid grounding in the basic data warehousing skills and business mindset needed to implement a data warehouse using TX DWA. You will be able to gather and analyze user stories and turn them into detailed requirement specifications. You can then turn the requirements over to technical ETL consultants or developers to carry out the actual ETL process. Or you can attend TX ETL training (see below) and learn how to do it yourself.
The training takes you from a number of dimensional models and simple star schema approaches to more complex models. Upon completion of the training, you will be able to analyze business requests, build models based on user stories, test your models and demonstrate your results to business users. In short, TX DWA Agile Dimensional Modeling enables you to:
- Use agile methodology for data warehousing projects using TX DWA.
- Analyze user stories and turn them into star schemas, dimensions and measures.
- Understand the basic concepts of relational and multidimensional databases.
- Carry out model based approach.
