When: June 6, 2011

Where: TDWI World Conference: Validating your DW/BI Direction, Chicago, IL

Course Summary:

This course provides an overview of some of the common architectures (hub versus bus) and methodologies (top-down versus bottom-up) that uniquely combine to form a data warehousing approach. There are many published approaches available and it can be difficult to objectively evaluate, select, and manage the right approach for a given situation. This course develops an assessment framework that can be applied across a range of approaches to help guide architects and managers in their selection process. As an illustration, the framework is developed and applied to some of the published approaches that are available in the literature and promoted by leading practitioners.
