General Modeling

A comment

In recent weeks I have read so many pessimistic and negative articles and comments in the social media about the state of data modeling in companies in Germany, but also worldwide.

Why? I don't know. I can't understand it.

I know many companies that invest a lot of time in data modeling because they have understood the added value. I know many companies that initially rejected data modeling as a whole, but understood its benefits through convincing and training.

Isn't it the case that we (consultants, managers, project managers, subject-matter experts, etc.) should have a positive influence on data modeling? To support our partners in projects in such a way that data modeling becomes a success? If we ourselves do not believe that data modeling is a success, then who does?

Data Vault - Datenmodellierung noch notwendig?

Wie bereits in meinem Blogpost Modellierung oder Business Rule beschrieben ist es notwendig sich bei der Datenmodellierung über Geschäftsobjekte, die Wertschöpfungskette, fachliche Details und die Methodik des Modellierens einige Gedanken zu machen.

Oder doch nicht? Kann ich mit Data Vault einfach loslegen? Schließlich ist Data Vault auf den ersten Blick ganz einfach. Drei Objekte: HUBs, LINKs und SAT(elliten), einem einfachen Vorgehensmodell und ein paar wenige Regeln. Brauche ich für Data Vault noch die Datenmodellierung?

Generating large example data with TPC-H

Several times I had the need for some large data sets to do some Data Vault tests at customer site, writing a blogpost, doing a demo or a webinar and many more. And sometimes I need data to do performance or data usage tests on different databases. Due to my work together with EXASOL I focused on the TPC-H tool DBGen to generate gigabytes of data.

To share my experience with DBGen generating large data sets I wrote this blogpost as a step by step instruction.
