Flashback to the 38th TDWI Roundtable in Frankfurt

Our roundtable in Frankfurt in March started with a bang:

Marketing for BI is even lower in the priority order than documentation.

You really have to let that sink in. Is that the case?

Our speaker Kim de Vries (Identity Driven) explained to all participants that this should not be the case. Quite the opposite: Her presentation Data Management and Marketing - an unlikely couple? showed all the necessary elements to lead BIA projects to success in external presentation and communication with a good brand and marketing strategy.

Knowledge Gap 2020

I, Stephan, am very happy that I'm invited to give a presentation at the Knowledge Gap 2020 in Munich.

My presentation is about advanced techniques in Fact-Oriented Modeling.

Often data models are built with a technical focus, because they need to be delivered fast or must meet various technical requirements. Therefore, the business aspect and the meaning of objects and relationships are swept under the table. But then the business domain later hardly understands the data model and has problems to work with it in own applications or reports – which often results in a redesign of the data model and renewed time and cost expenditures.
