Data Vault: What is it?

Today’s “instant everything world” has placed higher than ever expectations on business intelligence teams to have a 360 degree view of their operations, as well as provide customers with immediate access to their information at lightning speed. Whether it’s a snapshot report for a board of directors or access to banking activity, information is expected to be available instantaneously to maintain a self-sufficient and on-the-go lifestyle. Many organizations are challenged to face this demand due to lack of processes, business and IT team alignment, use of legacy systems, and rising costs to maintain existing solutions (to name a few).

The good news? There are emerging methodologies, such as a Data Vault Model, and modern technology tools that help organizations achieve full insight into their data, with the ability to manipulate it to meet their business needs.

As part 1 of our TESCHGlobal Data Management Movement, a thought-provoking series for those interested in learning about cutting-edge techniques for managing data more effectively, we dive into what a Data Vault system is and how its methodology can provide full agility and accessibility to your data all in one place.

Data Vault is a system of business intelligence (BI) and is a data warehouse modeling technique and methodology. It contains everything you need to accomplish enterprise vision in data warehousing and information delivery. The model is consistent and repeatable, yet adaptable to changing business requirements. Data that was once difficult to manage or considered unusable can be transformed into usable information through this scalable and flexible delivery solution. Data insights can be achieved automatically enabling businesses to share information with audiences that they have never had the ability to do before.

Watch our kickoff webinar led by VP of Professional Services, Robert Griswold, and Data Vault Certified Software Engineer, Justin Small, for an overview of the Data Vault system, why you should use one, and where to start.

As part of the Data Vault series, we will be releasing short video snippets around the Data Vault methodology, architecture, and model to provide an example of each component. Subscribe below to be the first to know when they are released.
