Level:  Intermediate

This is a case study based on our experience implementing a data sharing environment which provided us with the ability to effectively share data assets across the enterprise.

We will review the common data model patterns we designed and how we utilized them within our hub-n-spoke architecture. We will also discuss how our implementation aligns with the design of a Data vault, the similarities and the differences of that particular approach.

Topics of discussion:

  • Why Data Sharing - the impetus for establishing such an environment
  • Common Model - our approach for data integration and data asset sharing
  • Comparison with Data Vault - the similarities and the differences of the data patterns
  • Numbers and Such - utilization metrics of our environment and future plans

Please join us for this discussion which hopefully provides insight into our approach on effective sharing of data assets across the enterprise.
