Topic: Cloud Data Warehousing using Snowflake as a reference architecture
22nd Sept. 2020 – Data Modeling Meetup – Munich
Data Vault is a modern, agile approach to building an enterprise data warehouse and analytics repository. It provides auditable, historical data which can be loaded at speed. Kent Graziano a.k.a. “The Data Warrior” published a series of blog posts detailing how to optimize Data Vault architecture on the Snowflake Cloud Data Platform. This talk will follow in those footsteps using worked examples and demos covering parallel data loading & separation of workloads, key management, and managing big data to support schema-on-read.
