Webinar - Model driven decision making

An EXASOL Webinar serie

We are back again after a long time, with a new webinar. The last one, we (Mathias and I) did together is almost four years ago. Time flies by! What's up this time?

The fictitious company FastChangeCoTM has developed a possibility not only to manufacture Smart Devices, but also to extend the Smart Devices as wearables in the form of bio-sensors to clothing and living beings. With each of these devices, a large amount of (sensitive) data is generated, or more precisely: by recording, processing and evaluating personal and environmental data.

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?

An open and honest feedback on “13 tips …”

A few weeks ago I received a surprisingly open and honest feedback on my recently published article "13 tips ...". I never ever expected that! After a short email exchange, I was allowed to publish the feedback anonymously. Below is the incredible feedback[3]. You see, you are not alone with the challenges of a Data Vault project:

Hi Dirk

Thanks for sending me the English version of the paper. I'm based in […] [1] and Data Vault is not generally established here yet.

13 tips to make your Data Vault project fail

Or how to successfully destroy every level of the data warehouse

Dirk, I just read an article from you about Data Vault Modeling and the 13 tips for failure in the BI spectrum. A very interesting article with really good tips. Thanks a lot for that.Christian Ehrentraut, BI & Data Engineer

Are you pampered with success and tired of the eternal pat on the back? You don't want to be so successful with your first attempt at implementing a Data Vault project that all your colleagues become jealous?

Reporting- und Business-Intelligence-Werkzeuge für den Controller

Anfang letzten Jahres, genauer gesagt am 16. April ist das dritte Buch erschienen, zu dem ich ein Kapitel beigesteuert habe. Das Arbeiten an dem Kapitel hat wieder viel Spaß gemacht, vor allem auch wegen des tollen reportingimpulse-Teams. Aber nun zum Buch:

Wie im Einleitungskapitel zu diesem Buch dargestellt, sehen sich Controller heutzutage vielfältigen neuen Herausforderungen gegenüber. Dies ist hauptsächlich getrieben durch eine rasante technologische Entwicklung und häufige, in kurzen Intervallen, veränderte Anforderungen in der Geschäftswelt.

  • FOM

    Fact-Oriented Modeling (FOM) stands for a family of fact-oriented conceptual modeling methods. FOM facilitates easier communication about the conceptual model between the modeler and the domain expert by verbalization of concrete examples in the language of the domain expert, a design process as a guide for creating the model and the focus on elementary facts. The most popular methods in this family are Cognition Enhanced Natural Language Information Analysis Method (CogNIAM), Second Generation Object Role Modeling (ORM 2) and Fully Communication Oriented Information Modeling (FCO-IM).
