We will discuss what Data Warehouse automation is and very importantly what it isn’t. From there we will move on to why the role of modelling in some form is a vital part of the Data Warehouse automation process and how we approach this with WhereScape software. We will explore different kinds of model driven approaches and why it’s important that any automation software should be flexible enough to support many different approaches and be able to keep pace with the ever evolving standards of many of the popular modelling methodologies. The intention is that this will be an interactive session with lots of discussion so come prepared to participate.
