October 21-22 Agile Data Warehouse, Lawrence Corr

Dimensional modeling is the proven technique for designing comprehensive, high-performance Business Intelligence/Data Warehouse (BI/DW) systems. Agile dimensional modeling is dimensional modeling done iteratively, incrementally and collaboratively.

This course provides in depth coverage of agile dimensional modeling techniques for improving communication between BI/DW teams and business stakeholders as well as responding to changing DW requirements. Specifically the course covers BEAM*, the powerful, yet simple method for ModelStorming directly with BI stakeholders described in the book ‘Agile Data Warehouse Design: collaborative dimensional modeling, from whiteboard to star schema’.

You will learn to:

  • Model data requirements directly with stakeholders
  • Translate common cross-industry data analysis requirements into efficient, flexible dimensional models
  • Maximize the usability and performance of your data warehouse or data mart designs
  • Plan, design and incrementally develop agile data warehouse solutions


This course is for anyone interested in learning the latest agile techniques for designing and managing dimensional data warehouses and ETL processes. Beginner, intermediate and experienced data warehouse practitioners, data architects, DBA’s and ETL designers & developers will all benefit from this course.
