A cost effective data warehouse project doesn’t have to be an oxymoron. Rather than committing to a full-fledged waterfall style approach, it is possible to build a data warehouse incrementally and inexpensively, while at the same time preserving high-level architectural goals that lead to a true enterprise data warehouse. During this webinar, Kimball will delve into specific techniques for building and maintaining scaling data warehouses in a cost-effective manner.

During this webinar, you will learn:
• Dimensional schemas and how to use these proven data models with business users and implement them across BI delivery tools
• Conformed dimensions and how these essential enabling structures can provide integration across separate data sources in the data warehouse
• Time variance tracking techniques for representing all possible time tracking situations
• Data quality management and how to tackle data quality problems at the source
• Incremental development techniques for an agile approach to designing enterprise data warehouses

This webinar will also show how some of these data warehouse design techniques can be executed with ER/Studio, Embarcadero’s data modeling tool.
