Change resilience

limit the impact of any changes to the Data Vault 2.0 standard with our extensive standard set of templates.

Automation through repeatable patterns

automate the implementation and later modifications to your data warehouse with standard concepts such as hub, satellite, links and satellites on links. The logic to create these concepts in different contexts is repeatable and thus automatable.

Future proof

Data Vault 2.0 opens the door to dynamic data warehousing where the source system automatically adapts to changes without human intervention.

Support for different versions of the truth

Data Vault 2.0 starts with a single version of the truth, based on the actual data in the source systems. That version can in turn support other versions of the truth.

A note on the history of Data Warehousing

The leaders of thought in the world of Data Warehousing are Kimball, Inmon and Dan Linstedt, in chronological order. Each of these thinkers has introduced and exposed his theory to the entire enterprise data warehouse community. Over the years, there has been a constantly evolving insight reflected in ideas to become more complete, agile and realistic in real-life environments.

Data Vault, as the latest concept introduced by Dan Linstedt, was created as a method for data modeling and was added to the architecture vision ‘The Corporate Information Factory’ by Bill Inmon. It has grown into a Data Warehousing standard.
