Whitepaper: Accelerate your business taxonomy mapping with VaultSpeed


13 January 2022|In Events, Knowledge|By Jonas De Keuster

Learn how the VaultSpeed automation tool is designed to transfer any business taxonomy you might think of, into a raw Data Vault layer.
The Raw Data Vault (RDV) contains what Data Vault 2.0 calls the ‘Single Version of the Facts’. Facts are nothing more than the raw, historical, unfiltered data from the sources.

The Business Data Vault (BDV) aligns business keys/terms from the source system with the different business views in order to ensure compliance. Different viewpoints coexist and are all regarded by Data Vault 2.0 to be valid versions of the truth.

You’ll discover that these ‘versions of the Truth’ and the ‘Single version of Facts’ can truly blend.

Hands-on Session

Skip most of the data integration preparation with VaultSpeed

VaultSpeed’s data warehouse automation enables organizations to integrate data from numerous source platforms into one data vault. We harvest source metadata, users configure their source models and our engine delivers generated structures, ELT and workflows. Vaultspeed’s guided automation framework helps the user to combine and enrichmetadata from different sources in an intuitive way that corresponds to your target model.

Our out-of-the-box templates cover 90% of your implementation needs. They are 100% production-ready as VaultSpeed handles all the quality assurance and testing. We simplify the complex process of building a data vault by forcing the user to follow a pre-defined set of steps. This significantly reduces the chance of errors and ensuing rework.

VaultSpeed is quickly evolving. New functionalities are implemented every three to four weeks. Our cloud setup ensures our customers always run on the latest version.

We always try to help users eliminate time-consuming manual work and constantly work at developing new features by which they can reach even higher levels of automation.

Key takeaways:

- Integrate sources into your data warehouse quickly using Data Vault 2.0 and VaultSpeed

- Use VaultSpeed’s powerful source editor to tailor the Raw Data Vault and Business Vault towards your business taxonomy.

Customer Succes

There are a lot of aspects that can make or break your data warehouse project. We’d like to cover three of those using three cases from the real world: Time to market, cloud architecture and fulfilling business requirements.

Learn how VaultSpeed is speeding up the implementation process at Eurocontrol, Europes Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation, using its out-of-the-box templates. One year into the project, Eurocontrol conducted an internal ROI analysis.

We’re launching a huge project at Olympus, a global player in the MedTech market. As they are playing on a global level, they are moving their data platform to the cloud. VaultSpeeds cloud architecture fits right in.

Finally, no project succeeds without fulfilling business requirements and speaking their language. At Bank de Groof Petercam, VaultSpeed enabled developers to map their business taxonomy to the data vault model.

Roadmap Presentation

The VaultSpeed automation is tool is at the top of the evolutionary/acceleration ladder.

Curious to know how a decade of hands-on experience in data integration projects has resulted in a SaaS platform that provides faster data warehouse automation?

For us, all along, that was the key of our evolution. It was not about our intrinsic strength or intellectual ability, but rather the ability to understand the difficulties that our customers encounter and adapting and tweaking our platform to help them survive.

And no, it definitely was not a rollercoaster. Or to quote Charles Darwin himself “In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.”

We are living in an environment that continues to evolve. That’s why we’re happy to share a sneak peek of our Roadmap and how we see the world of data warehouse automation will evolve in the near and not so near future.

Vaultspeed Roundtable + Data Vault Modelling & Data Governance Conference

It has been a busy week for Vaultspeed and its partners Tripwire Solutions, DataSense, Sparkle, NXTData and Scalefree. 

On Wednesday they hosted a Vaultspeed Roundtable in Leuven. After an introduction by Agile Information Factory partner Piet De Windt,  some interesting cases were discussed.

Bart Gielen and customer VMM - Vlaamse Milieu Maatschappij discussed a data vault implementation using an intelligent mix of open source and vendor solutions. Pivotal Greenplum was chosen as DB platform while Vaultspeed was used as the automation tool. SQL coded ELT flows originating from Debezium based CDC are being orchestrated by an Apache Airflow scheduler. VMM has a lot of challenges coming up in data integration of large IoT data streams and this solution is what should make their architecture future proof.

Kristof Van de Loock presented a case together with his customer SYNTRA Vlaanderen. Vaultspeed automation was used to build a data vault on a Microsoft stack with SQLServer as the preferred DB platform. They integrated data from both internal, external and open data sources in a quest to add more value to their integrated data sets. SSIS was used for ELT and CDC was built using Attunity Replicate. At SYNTRA Vlaanderen, people where amazed by the speed at which Data Vault and automation can deliver actual value.




After lunch the vision and roadmap for Vaultspeed were discussed by Jonas De Keuster. At Vaultspeed we believe that digital leaders are made not only by experimenting with new technologies and exploiting their capabilities, this agile mindset is of course very important, but a truly successful strategy should also take into account the effort of integrating the data generated (and consumed) by all these new platforms. We believe that change has become the key issue and that the value cycle of data is different from the lifecycle of a single application. That is why we offer a tool that enables organisations to integrate their data into one single data hub, where the whole organisation can benefit from this effort, and to do this not once, but continuously.

Vaultspeed wants to invest heavily in making the complex process of building a data vault as easy as possible. We will keep improving towards intuitive graphical interfaces that should assist the user in the decision making process by implementing smart suggestions and eliminating as much of the manual work as possible. Also the tool should extend its capabilities to add custom logic so that our customers can work towards a tailor made solution for their data integration challenges.


To end the day, we had some interesting talks by Ivan Schotsmans (DV-Community) and Michael Olschimke (Scalefree) about data governance and the strengths of Data Vault 2.0. Michael shared some experiences at customers and explained how the maturity model can help organisations on defining where they are as a data organisation, and more importantly, help them decide on where they need to go, and deliver a roadmap towards that goal. Michael answered a lot of questions about pitfalls to avoid in data vault projects and it was great to see the interaction amongst participants around the table.


On Thursday we attented the Data Vault Modelling and Data Governance Conference hosted by IT Works and the Belgian Data Vault Community.


At the event, Koen Verheyen, data architect at Tripwire Solutions discussed an implementation at Argenta. This multi speed Data Hub is built on the Data Vault model and powered by Oracle technologies. A powerful Oracle Exadata platform using GoldenGate CDC and ODI ELT's provide the solution to integrate data from numerous sources into an integrated platform to serve multiple stakeholders inside and outside of the organisation. A powerful data governance framework was installed and should make sure that the entire organisation becomes more aware of the importance of data because only by a joint effort of business, IT and management can such a large integration project be truly successful.


Also at the event, our pre-sales manager Geert Huyskens was ready and able to demo our tool to the attendees of the Conference.

After all a very fruitful couple of days, with lots of interesting stuff going on. Thanks to all the participants for attending and joining the discussions. In the mean time our team at Vaultspeed is working hard towards helping our customers keeping their data, value and technology aligned, all the time.



Vaultspeed Round Table

On Wednesday 16th of October, Vaultspeed and its Belgian partners are organising a round table event at the Faculty Club in Leuven. The event will cover some interesting use cases on Data Vault implementations. Ivan Schotsmans of the Belgian Data Vault Community, will talk about best practises in Data Governance in combination with Data Vault. Last but not least, Michael Olschimke, CEO at Scalefree, will talk about the strengths of Data Vault and explain why it is the better solution.

Vaultspeed showcasing in hands on demo at WWDVC Europe!

Hannover - 10 September 2019



Today Vaultspeed was showcasing at the World Wide Data Vault Consortium in Hannover, Germany. Over 50 participants of the conference were able to create a data vault using our tool in a 2 hour session. In the demo, we included some new features like our new Graphical editor and also support for PIT tables.


The graphical editor enables users to implement large sources with a lot of objects in a way that keeps the entire process manageable. Participants were also able to see how our cloud solution allows you to set up a project in a matter of minutes so you can start building data vaults right away.

Vaultspeed will be at the conference the entire week. Our booth is fully equipped to give you a demo of the tool. On Thursday we will present another session that goes deeper into the advantages of using automation tools for data vault implementations on your data hub or data warehouse platform.
