This is a great class. The presentation of the material is top-notch and the real world examples help tie it all together. I also did an extensive amount of networking at the class. Lastly, Dan is very approachable and I was able to correct 2 (potential) mistakes with our DV 2.0 Implementation just by talking to him.

Dan’s pragmatic approach to data warehousing, coupled with his decades of experience make his training sessions especially insightful and useful. We are able to begin applying these concepts immediately in our enterprise to deliver business value in analytics.

Really appreciated the level of knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience that Dan had for the topic. Additionally the real world examples of where the patterns have been used help lock in the benefits and capabilities of the DV2.0 design patterns.

This is a must attend class prior to building a Data Vault based Data Warehouse. I have over 2 years experience implementing a near real-time eventing DW utilizing the Data Vault and I learned many things that should have been done differently. Dan is an awesome teacher and combines real work practitioners experience with the acedemic and technical teaching. The class interaction also helped make this a truly worthwile use of my time. Dan also has a great sense of humor and lots of related work stories to keep your interest. I highly recommend this class.

Too much time spent on agile methodology – time missing for practical samples of PIT and Bridge at the end of course.
Location for the last day was not suitable – small room, wrong visibility

The DataVault 2.0 model and methodology are the cure to the biggest pain in data warehousing: complexity growing over time, eventually bringing the project down. And Dan Linstedt has all the experience to back it up.

It was really a honour to spend some time with Dan. This is his life work and I really appreciate him taking the time out of his schedule to educate me. I found him able to guide me on applying the methodology specifically to my real world use cases. Much better than your average bootcamp taught by a tutor who is just there to pay the bills.

Trainer Michael Olschimke really knows DV because he once was questioning really hard and became a follower when convinced. He showed a lot of business cases, real world examples and notes from customer approaches. The class was not to big and provided material (sheets and books) to take away. Firstly stuff seems way to much for three days, but in the end it all fits in.

This new course is a big improvement over the previous DV1 version. Besides the new DV2 modeling it covers the other elements of DV2 like architecture, methodology, PIT & bridge tables, etc.
I especially like the detailed explanations on the DV2 concepts and on the agile methodology. Very useful are the loading templates and the discussion on managed self-service BI.
I recommend this course to everyone who is interested in “latest & greatest” data warehousing.

Fabulous class providing real-life examples, great interaction with the instruction, direct applicability to recent project challenges, and most insightful when it comes to physical implementation on different platforms (Teradata vs. Netezza vs. SQL Server). The course was particularly helpful in understanding the way Hadoop and Big Data fit into the Business Intelligence arena, and how Big Data can be incorporated into existing data warehousing processes without disrupting or re-engineering existing infrastructure. Everyone performing as a data architect in an Agile environment should be required to take this class. Sending the Enterprise Architect and his team through this course would be one of the best investments in human capital any organization could make. As an understanding of DV2 principles permeates within an organization the organization’s ability to capitalize on its existing information capital will be enhanced and its ability to innovate will grow rapidly.

It is a great class with the knowledgable instructor, who can respond to the participants questions. The only problem I see is the course plan, which has too much focus to the methodology part (Scrum, DAD model). Too little time was left to the implementation.

This class is a must if you are new to the DV 2.0 concepts. I had read through the “Super Charge” book which layed out the modeling approaches of DV 1.0 and was a recommended “pre-read” to the Boot Camp. The Boot Camp solidified my understanding and provided me with the implementation methodology necessary for a successful DV effort. Dan was thorough in explaining the entire approach, soup (methodology) to nuts (modeling). He answered every question honestly and to the best of his vast knowledge of both industry and practice. The course provided me with the confidence needed to go forward with a DV 2.0 design and implementation recommendation for my client. Dan Linstedt’s work in DV methodology and modeling techniques provides the most flexible and comprehensive framework I’ve found to date for solving the complexities surrounding Big Data warehousing and sustainment.
