TX2014 Master Class

Special Training Event in Denmark, 1 October 2015

The TX2014 Master Class builts upon the foundation of TX Agile Dimensional Modeling and TX ETL. You’ll learn to use some of the advanced and powerful features of the recent releases of TX2014 and get a glimpse of the features in the next release of TX2014.

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 TX2014. 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, TX2014 Agile Dimensional Modeling enables you to:

  • Use agile methodology for data warehousing projects using TX2014.
  • 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.

Audience: Business users, technical users and TimeXtender Software partners.

 

The TX Agile Dimensional Modeling Class is taught by Rene Dueholm, TimeXtender expert by day and gokart-driver by night.

TX ETL

This two day training class builds on the concepts and models introduced in the TX Agile Dimensional Modeling training. It enables you to implement complex solutions with TX2014. This ETL training class will introduce you to meta-data driven development using TX2014. It will close the gap between the validated model and your transactional source systems.

Upon completion of the training, you will feel confident using basic ETL skills such as data extraction, data cleansing, data quality, and data load, as well as more advanced skills such as implementing incremental loading, history, slowly changing dimensions, and deployment. TX2014 ETL training empowers you to:

  • Extract data from various data sources
  • Extract data via Application Adapters
  • Carry out data cleansing and data validation
  • Implement incremental loads
  • Implement history and surrogate keys
  • Implement slowly changing dimensions.
