Getting Started With Dimensional Modeling
Marc Beacon, President DawaBI

Technology has revolutionized the way organizations run today. Rather than a few file cabinets, organizations use many different software packages and applications that are mission critical to running their business. These systems gather a large amount of valuable data that must be used in decision making to maintain a competitive advantage. However, we've all heard and likely been around when mission critical systems have been rendered useless due to long running reports. To solve this and a host of other source system reporting issues we have proven Data Warehousing techniques to store the data in a report friendly way.

Dimensional modeling is one of the most widely used set of techniques that will provide source system relief for reporting. In this session, we will take a look at what Dimensional Modeling is along with some key terms and techniques.

Marc Beacom is President of DawaBI, a Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence Consultancy firm and Founder of Attendee.Events, an Event Management Software Platform. Marc has over 15 years of business and technical experience and servers as Principal Architect, Mentor and Trainer on projects.
